Hi, new to this particular party, but had a question nonetheless.

I was at last month's meeting at Wu's house. Someone had an AquaJournal that depicted Amano's before and after shots of straight-out rock terracing. Mind you, it's all in Japanese, so I have no idea what was written, but I am very interested in seeing the images from that AJ again. I'm planning on a large terracing project later this year and possibly a "proof of concept" test within the next month or so.

Does anyone know where I could find images of completed terracing *before* planting? I'm curious to see how the rocks are interlocked, if there were any special procedures used, etc. Assistance?

Gracias!

I am! The images showed a couple of decent-sized tanks, perhaps 90-150 gallons, terraced and mostly covered in java moss. Amano and Co. removed all the moss and replated the terraces... I'm trying to find images of the naked terraces and possibly the replanting as well. I saw that PM you sent, but I must have missed what you were pointing at.

PS.-How's that Nano site coming? :D

Let's see:

This was a nice technical description-

I can't read it, but this was the same gallery that I saw the original images in-

A before'n'after, but not much on the actual terracing-

AhHA! This is the process for a normal terrace wall-

A site that sells AquaJournal-

That's all I have for the moment. Still not what I was looking for, but closer.
