Nature Aquarium

Nature Aquarium artfully mirrors the delicate ecosystems of our world within the confines of an aquarium, forging a harmonious bond between aquatic plants, fish, shrimp, snails, and myriad microorganisms.


This union not only constructs a naturally balanced biosphere but also cultivates enchanting underwater vistas that sustain themselves through the inherent symphony of life they encapsulate.

Origin is Nature

At the heart of every Nature Aquarium lies the essence of the natural world itself. To truly grasp the intricacies of these aquatic masterpieces, one must first immerse themselves in the profound beauty and complexity of nature. This understanding is cultivated not just by observation, but by a deep and reverent comprehension of our environment.

Our reservoir of knowledge is enriched by a myriad of resources - from Amano’s seminal books and illuminating AquaJournals to hands-on workshops. Personal ventures into photography, travel, literature, and the study of biology and zoology further deepen our connection to the natural world. Whether you're diving into the amazon river or engrossed in a documentary, every experience is a lesson.

With this wealth of knowledge, we are equipped to craft aquatic tapestries that not only resonate with the allure of the wild but also embody the serenity and wonder of Nature Aquariums and the art of Aquascaping.

Takashi Amano created in 1995


In 1995, Takashi Amano, with a vision to celebrate and elevate the art of aquascaping, pioneered the International Aqua-Plant Summit. He meticulously gathered a panel of the world's foremost aquatic plant enthusiasts at the ADA's nexus. As the contest evolved and drew from the learnings of its formative years, 2001 marked a renaissance in its journey.


It was rechristened the International Aquatic Plants Layout Contest (IAPLC), magnifying its global footprint through the powerful medium of the internet and the much-anticipated annual IAPLC Booklets. These publications not only showcase the crème de la crème of the submissions but also provide invaluable insights from the jury.

Every iteration of the IAPLC stands as a testament to the ever-evolving artistry and innovation of the world's leading aquascapers, presenting underwater masterpieces that captivate and inspire. We extend an invitation to enthusiasts around the world to be part of this prestigious contest annually. Embark on a journey of reinvention, as you immerse yourself in the mesmerizing world of Nature Aquarium and its myriad aquatic design techniques.
