Nature by Numbers
This beautiful video below shows how the Golden Ratio exists and appears in nature, from the shell of a Nautilus to the shape of a sunflower.
Not only can you keep it in the back of your mind when diving or watching a Trochus snail cleaning you front pane, but also when designing and creating an aquascape for your tank, and arranging corals. Because the Golden Ratio is appearing everywhere in nature, using it to design and create an Aquascape will give you much more natural and exiting result.
For hundreds of years Chinese and Japanese gardeners implemented this law into their (rock) landscaping designs, called Iwagumi. More recently aquarists like Mr Amano used it to create his impressive aquascapes.
