| | The Yin and the Yang
In the tradition of the great Takashi Amano comes this simple, elegant composition representing the yin and the yang, life and death, the circle of life.
1 white pebble (the Yin)
1 black pebble (the Yang)
1 Limnophila indica (deceased)
1 Lemna minor (alive)
Volume: 1 quart
Light: whatever comes through the window
CO2: who knows?
GH: who can say?
KH: such numbers are immaterial, really
Note the highly original round shape of the aquarium, representing the circle of life, or the circle of nutrient renewal through decay and death, or any other circle actually. The composition intrigues through its clean lines and absence of any unnecessary decor. Upon contemplating it, the viewer feels overcome by a great tranquility. Death must be, but hope springs anew in the tiny but thriving duckweed - will it embrace life and multiply?
