    Nice!

    Those ADA wabi-kusa plugs really make a huge difference in the speed of planting and ease of covering vast areas of substrate... i'd imagine they will start growing quickly with minimal transition period too.

    Not sure why but when i first saw the press release, i keep thinking it was a 40ft tank... which i thought was already amazing. Then i read again and saw that its actually 40 meters! Which is 120ft, its crazy.

    there's plenty of peacock bass and freshwater stingray (http://link.springer.com/article/10....530-009-9663-5) in our reservoirs, due to many many many hobbyists discarding their outgrown pets into our waterways.

    Re: The World’s Largest Project of Nature Aquarium (2015) - Oceanário de Lisboa

    This is the Part 1 , just in case anybody miss out



    On April 22, next week, "Forests Underwater" will officially open to the public.
    It is the world's largest Nature Aquarium that is Amano's biggest challenge of
    his works. It has been two months and a half since the layoutmaking. We have
    been focusing our energy on its maintenance in order to welcome the aquascape
    in the best condition for the opening.
    It is the long-awaited grand opening. How will the finished layout surprise us?
    The guests are invited from around the world to celebrate the birth of this
    historic spectacular. We don't let you miss the opening ceremony because we
    will keep updating you through Aqua Journal, ADA-view, and the special webpage.

    The interview with Takashi Amano, "The Passion for Tropical Paradise", is
    coming soon on the special webpage followed by the grand opening. What was
    Amano's pressure for challenging the unprecedented massive aquarium? What was
    his passion poured into this work to be his culmination....? It is definitely
    a must-see article for fans!

    In the Behind the Scenes of the world's largest Nature Aquarium, you will see
    people's anguish and joy, and lots of intertwining dramas inside. It helps
    you to see the work in a different perspective to maximize your experience
    and make it more enjoyable. Before visiting Lisbon, click the link below to
    see the special webpage for this project!

    Part 3 is published



    Following the grand opening ceremony on April 22, 2015, the world's largest
    Nature Aquarium "Forests Underwater" was open to public. It has been two
    months and a half since its layout making. Both, the ADA maintenance team
    staying in Lisbon and the Oceanário team have been working hard in order to
    have the best outcome at the opening. Thanks to their efforts, the tank is in
    great condition. On the day of the opening, the media gathered from the local
    to around the world. Amano who flew from Japan was even amazed to see such a
    large number of press. He appreciated once again how this project attracts a
    great attention from the world.

    that will kill the enthusiasm, which would defeat the purpose of having an aquarium in the first place. The things you own end up owning you. Hahaha.. Apt

    Re: The World’s Largest Project of Nature Aquarium (2015) - Oceanário de Lisboa

    Okay, I think this is a very old thread. But I have been wondering on the maintenance routine for a 40m tank like Oceanario de Lisboa. You can see hundreds and thousands of Amazonia soil being poured into the aquarium during its creation and everyone in the hobby knew that the lifespan for Amazonia is about 2 years before it turned into a muddy mess. I really wonder how is the ADA team going to "rescape" the tank after the Amazonia degrade? I don't think it's possible considering the size of the tank. They probably just add new Amazonia on top of the old ones.
