 What  is  meant  by  the  term  "  Golden  Section  "  or  Optical  Center  when  it  comes  to  composing  an  aquascape  ?

 Yes  I  will,  but  it  is  difficult  to  get  the  whole  concept  in  here.  I  was  waiting  for  help  in  the  form  of  questions  etc.,
 
 I  don't  want  this  site  to  simply  be  a  jumble  of  links....  It  would  be  much  better  to  have  a  lot  of  interaction  and  build  this  site  from  the  INDIAN  AQUARIUM  HOBBYISTS  perspective.
 
 The  answer  to  the  GOLDEN  SECTION  thingy  is  well  beaten  in  many  websites  and  in  Amano's  Journals.  though  not  in  great  detail.
 
 The  one  thing  I  see  in  many  Planted  Aquarium  setups  is  random  planting  and  placement  whereby  a  tank  with  a  2  feet  depth  looks  just  15  inches  deep.  (  by  depth  I  mean  the  width  of  the  tank).
 
 This  can  be  easily  rectified  by  a  few  changes  is  placement  of  drift  wood...  place  them  at  an  angle  as  opposed  to  keeping  them  parallel  to  the  front  glass.
 
 Placement  of  palnts  etc.,
 
 So  Venkat  what  else  do  you  wnat  to  know?

 I've  seen  a  lot  of  terracing  in  dutch  aquariums  using  cork  bark,  driftwood  and  rocks  though  they  do  give  depth  do  they  follow  the  principle  of  the  golden  rule?

 Yes,  the  Golden  Rule  is  not  just  a  Japanese  idea.  Every  Dutch  planted  aquaria  follows  this  rule.  In  fact  in  Dutch  planted  aquaria  competitions  this  is  a  very  heavy  scoring  (  or  deducting  )  category.
 
 The  Golden  Section  Rule  is  not  only  prevalent  in  aquaria  and  aquascaping...  not  just  planted  aquaria  but  all  forms  of  aquaria  except  bare  tanks.
 
 The  whole  idea  is  derived  from  all  forms  of  arts,  -  Paintings,  landscaping  architecture  and  what  have  you.

 Very  interesting  Madan  Smile
 I  now  realise  why  my  tank  looks  more  like  a  weed  grower  rather  then  a  properly  aquascaped  system,  despite  the  fact  that  it  has  more  plants  then  imaginable.
 
 Better  idea  to  have  a  bogwood  towards  the  centre  of  a  tank  or  towards  the  corners?  My  tank  is  almost  5ft  (58")  and  19"  wide.  Any  recomendations  for  it?
 This  is  what  it  looks  like.  As  you  can  see,  plants  are  plenty  but  now  totally  disoriented.  I  have  to  redo  all  my  tanks  again  in  the  next  20  days  or  so  as  I  am  moving  into  a  new  house  Smile
 
 
 Thanks,
 Nimish

 It  is  indeed  very  unfortunate  that  bright  ideas  like  these  don't  get  much  response  and  people  come-up  with  silly  and  absurd  threads  which  keep  on  &  on  &  on.......
 I  think  threads  like  this  should  be  really  looked  upon  by  beginners  and  advanced  hobbyists  to  be  discussed  in  detail  -  it  is  a  very  intresting  topic!
 Where  should  one  ideally  position  a  focal  point?
 Proportionately  how  big  should  the  focal  point  be  compared  to  the  length,  depth  &  height?
 should  the  focal  point  be  highlighted/contrasted  or  complimented  by  the  surrounding?
 can  we  have  more  than  one  focal  points  in  the  tank?  If  yes  what  should  be  considered  before  attmepting  to  create  them?
 Would  it  not  be  interesting  to  discuss  the  above  points  in  detail?
 sorry  -  looking  at  the  quality  of  recent  threads  I  was  forced  to  dig-out  this  one    Very Happy

 Hi,
 Please  refer  to
 
 http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Golden_ratio  
 to  know  about  golden  ratio.
 
 You  can  find  a  reference  to  this  in  Dan  Brown's  Da-vinci  code.
 see  http://altreligion.about.com/library/bl_davincicode.htm
 
 
 The  basics  aquascaping  suggests  that  the  focAl  point  for  a  Aquarium..  i.e  the  stuff  u  wanted  to  highlight  or  the  one  you  wanted  the  Audience  to  focus,  SHOULD  NOT  BE  PLACE  IN  CENTER  IF  THE  TANK..
 
 it  should  be  in  such  a  position  that  the  Ratio  of  distance  from  both  the  corners  should  be  1.6180.
 for  eg..  if  you  wanted  to  highlight  a  red  lilly  or  a  beautiful  bog  wood  with  a  moss,  position  the  object  such  that..  if  "A"  is  the  distance  of  the  object  from  left  corner  of  the  tank  and  "B"  is  the  Distance  form  the  Right  corner  of  the  tank.  then
 
 A/B  or  B/A  should  be  1.6180.
 
 This  rule  can  be  applied  along  any  plane..  meaning  depth  wise  too..
 
 HTH,
 G.Senthil  Kumar

 @sen,
 thank  you  for  the  prompt  response  -  it  is  indeed  a  brilliant  post!
 but,  why  don't  we  discuss  in  detail  as  Mr.  madan  suggested  instead  of  just  providing  links  even  a  snap  of  our  tank  or  a  sketch  explaining  to  the  new-comers  would  help.
 I  think  we  should  have  a  step-by-step  sketch  explaining  the  aquascaping  or  maybe  an  article  on  the  same!
