About the Cover

The Artist at home. On this month’s cover, master aquascaper Takashi Amano shares with us his view of the 14-foot (4-meter) planted tank in his home in Niigata, Japan. Largely spearheaded by Mr. Amano, the current revolution in aquatic gardening is well demonstrated by his annual International Aquatic Plants Layout Contest (of which our own Editor-in-Chief David E. Boruchowitz is honored to be among the judges), and we are proud to present photographs of the top 12 winning aquascapes from the 2010 competition (p. 54).

Tip of the Month:

The number of eggs a female fish produces is related to the amount of parental care given? A cod might shed several million eggs in a single spawning, leaving them to disperse in the open ocean, while a cichlid that broods her eggs in her mouth and cares for the fry after hatching may produce only a half dozen per clutch.
