Format: Hardcover
This book is fantastic. It is a must have for any budding aquascaper or expert in their field. It shows what can be done with a little time and effort with a simple fish tank and a few plants. The tanks shown in the book are from small sized tanks to massive tanks that a zoo would be proud of.
Each cell photograph also has a complete list of plants, fauna etc and the most important water parameters so you could try to emulate one of the images.
There are a few step by step pages - showing you how the scene was created.
This book is a credit to the author - two decades of work in one book. It shows how styles changed and also how the skills changed for the author. I have purchased this book and it is now pride of my collection. Totally recommend it to everyone.
People looking for a book on fish - would be disappointed. But people looking for inspiration on planted tanks and aquariums would be delighted.

This book contains many absolutely beautiful aquarium layouts, with superb photography and details on the equipment and environmental parameters needed to achieve them. My only slight criticism is that they are not really 'true' nature aquariums as the title would have you believe. Many look more like gardens (very beautiful ones!) with 6 or more plant species (which is extremely rare in a restricted aquatic habitat in nature) from different countries or even continents, never mind the same habitat. And that goes for the fish too. They are also a little bit 'fussy' in my opinion - for example none of these tanks have dead tree leaves on the substrate, which would be far more realistic and actually beneficial for many 'rainforest' tanks (which most of these are really). In short, Mother Nature is not a gardener! Still, nobody could deny the tanks look stunning, over many years Amano raised tank design to an art form. Be warned this book could easily inspire you to create a new tank!

Excellent book, can spend hours at a time gazing at the pictures, all really high quality. The only criticism is that all the animals and plants that are listed in each picture are all listed with their latin names, which means a lot of googling if you want to know exactly what it is!
Amano is a genius.
