    Let´s start with Q: Layoutvariations by ADA

    The diversity of Natureaquarium!

    What types of aquascapes can be created in a Nature Aquarium to express nature?


    Nature Aquarium started with an Iwagumi layout which used river stones to express an aquascape. After that, a rich variety of aqusacapes have been created using various types of stones and driftwood for layout materials and more species of aquatic plants. The recent global trend of cosmetic sand also originated from Nature Aquarium. Open aquariums, which expresses not only underwater aquascape but also waterfront landscape, has been established as one of the unique layout styles of Nature Aquarium.
