In keeping with this week’s Aquarium of the Week, we here at AquaticLog have a bit of an appreciation for what has become known as the “minimalist” approach to aquarium design. As you can see in this photo taken by one of AquaticLog’s newest members, Tochi, there is a certain attractive quality to really keeping things simple, and it goes to show that sometime LESS really is MORE. This approach has become fairly popular over the last couple years and doesn’t show signs of slowing down, especially with the advent of better, more efficient equipment providing much better mechanical and biological filtration. The question may be, is this just one of the latest fads in the hobby or will we continue to see more and more aquarists taking this approach?
