Re: NFC: amano


Yes, I agree! (Mr. moon tends to fly off at times.......)  I am just as
fascinated with Amanos tank layout and design Ideas as I am by what Moons
ditch tank looks like.  How did they decide what to put where? I feel that
neither of them do this design thing in a random fashion........  Perhaps
it's just that the $ of the equipment clouds peoples minds with regards to
the fundamentals that create such aquascapes.

BTW, I never sure which address to contact you at.....  Should I be
expecting a box of fish and plants this week?  No shipment today!  :(
