I wonder what sort of dosing type and regime Mr Amano would have used on the show aquarium set up at the convention?
I could understand using a period of low light for viewing and then a shorter period of high light for photosynthesis at which time CO2 is injected with a large aquarium of more than, say, 75 US gallons. But with anything smaller, I wonder if such a varied schedule would work? Would he have used such a lighting and dosing schedule on the show tank? What was the show tank's size?
The aim must be to have beautiful looking plants, in top condition, which grow as slowly as possible after the initial set up period, so that pruning and maintenance is at a reasonable rate. The implication is that Amano does not 'drive' his aquariums as much as some would.
I expect we have to order the DVD to get the full answer?
