Additional Information The Echoing Green is now almost 2 years old.
Many aquascapers were inspired by the Iwagumi layout that Mr. Amano mastered due to its openness and powerful impact - Deceptively simple, there is actually no room to hide mistakes and so every plant, moss, and animal must be in their best health. It is this simplicity and beauty that inspires many new aquascapers to try the Iwagumi style. I wanted to take this traditional style and maximise the expression of flow, openness, positivity, health of plants over time.
These days we seldom see the Iwagumi layout scoring high but I hope to offer something special, something that looks simple but has far detail for people to enjoy. I hope you enjoy this aquascape as much as I have enjoyed keeping it for 2 years. It is an aquascape that echoes the tradition of Iwagumi in the present.
