Great interview Carlos. Frode Roe's tanks from the 2000 AGA (especially his 2nd place entry) have been my absolute favorites since the very first time I saw them. They made such a striking impression, even on my untrained eyes, that I couldn't help but be deeply moved. His work has had the strongest influence on what I like to see in planted tanks.

I do feel that Dutch aquascaping has been marginalized by the (fairly) recent influence of Eastern tank design. While Amano's aquascapes are beautiful in their own right, I don't like the idea of trying to imitate or duplicate nature nearly as much as I like the expression of one's own creativity, in whatever form it might take. Thanks for letting us in on what Frode's been up to, I was wondering myself :D
