The hardscape-only aquascape style is easily translatable across every aquarium size. This aquarium is an Aqua Design Amano (ADA) 60-P which measures 60cm x 30cm x 36cm and is approximately 18 gallons. A very simple, minimal, decidedly modern aquascape is created here that can easily be imagined in an open, clean, modern interior. An attractive feature of this hardscape-only aquascape style is that routine aquarium maintenance is made incredibly easy. While some may argue for the presence of live aquatic plants in such an aquarium, the hardscape style is all about a more minimalist approach. Just as interior styles, design sensibilities, and aesthetic preferences vary greatly from person to person, so too does the wants and desires of what one seeks in their aquascaping style. Live aquatic plants in this aquascape would alter the atmosphere dramatically, as well as increase the routine maintenance requirements– something many aquarium lovers seek to avoid.
