    My husband and I are starting a planted tank. We have the tank and stand and we are now in the planning stages for the scaping. His dream for the tank is for it to not just be planted, but look like an underwater world. Has anyone used/perused an aquascaping book? We're looking for pictures, how-to's and different types of plants used. Thanks!

    The two most popular ones I have heard of come from Takashi Amano and Diana Walstad, I don't have either of them though. Diana Walstad goes more into the understanding of the plants needs, and Takashi Amano goes more into the aquascaping aspect. So, they may be worth looking into. There is also a lot of inspiration in the form of step-by-step youtube videos (iwagumi, dutch, etc. aquascape styles), journals, and tons of pictures that could also help.

    Then again, there is a bit of a mystery and fun in just winging it knowing only the details of the plants :).
