    Most of you have probably stumbled across at least one of these images–these beautiful aquariums set up by CP Farm Japan continue to provide inspiration to aquarists around the world for their vibrant colors and balanced aquascapes. I’d also add that I believe these aquariums have largely influenced the popularity of Apogon and Zoramia species.It is true the tanks seen here were set up for display purposes and are not long running aquariums. However, that does not take away for the skill involved to create these aquatic arts.

    CP Farm recently added these large 1280 x 1024 pixel images to their site. Additional images can be found here. The quality of the images does show their age, still they are terrific representations of modern aquarium design and aquascaping. Enjoy!

    CP Farm sells many aquacultured animals including soft and hard corals, clownfish, clams and liverock. Hats off to them for combining their knack of coralscaping with sustainable operations.

      Eric, this is the tank that gets routine, if not constant, water flow through of natural sea water, correct? My memory is failing in my old age. Still lovely.

      Love the red spot cardinal school…I'm going to have to keep me eye on Diver's Den for some more. I've had my 5 for a month now, and all seem to be doing great.
