Your story

We explore the balance between joy and suffering and how it connects to the
hobby of aquascaping. It goes beyond being just a hobby; aquascaping can serve
as a spiritual practice that brings you into the present moment, allowing you
to disconnect. We recommend incorporating this into your daily life to gain
psychological and spiritual benefits.

Why of Aquascaping

ZAS aims to establish a connection between this hobby and something greater. The main goal is to truly understand the "why" of aquascaping.

Thus, it is crucial to "start with a why".

Some people see aquascaping as merely another aquarium hobby or a way to pass time. However, when integrated into your daily and spiritual life, as well as your meditation practices, it offers much more. By sitting in front of your aquarium and fully being in the present moment, you disconnect from everything else and can concentrate solely on your tank. This aligns with the Flow Theory.

Imagine a human being composed mainly of a skeleton surrounded by muscles, flesh, and bones. This analogy can be related to an aquarium, where the wood or rock represents the skeleton, the plants symbolize the muscles, and the water is akin to blood.

The central wood or rock is equivalent to the spinal cord, which serves as the foundational piece from which all other bones branch out.

In aquascaping, two factors are essential: material selection and how you arrange them to create a visually impacting effect. It is safest to assume that the simpler, "back to the roots," enjoyment-focused mindset resonates more with you than the mere entertainment aspect of this hobby.

Having done some research, ZAS has found success in aquascaping, driven by a desire to entertain others and promote a people-pleasing mentality. It's like being the jester of the court, proclaiming, "Look at me, everyone, I'm having a great time, look at all of this."

Rather than aiming for perfection, simply find joy in the process. Understanding stoicism requires acknowledging that there is no control over anything except one's own mind. Once this is accepted, it becomes necessary to let go of things beyond our control and accept them with serenity. This applies to aquascaping too, as challenges may arise, such as algae issues, fish diseases, or dying plants. You have no control over these issues, but you can control how you react or behave in response to them. Some people only focus on what they did right and never consider their mistakes. The goal is to comprehend such situations intuitively. Allow your thinking mind to relax, and instead, feel the aquascape without overanalyzing it. Observe and witness its changes day by day. Through patterns and intuition, you will know what to do, without overthinking, blaming, or seeking help. Aquascaping can teach us patience. By consuming the aquarium with complete awareness and consciousness, it can be merged with meditation.

Through ZAS, hobbyists can start thinking of their aquascapes in a slightly different manner. Simply accept and enjoy them as they are at that particular moment in time. If they do not require maintenance, embrace that. If there is no algae issue to take care of, appreciate that and stop perceiving them as problems. In reality, they are opportunities.

Meet Dr Vikrant Verma

About four years ago, my journey into the world of fish-keeping and nature aquariums began. As delved deeper into the hobby, I became intrigued by its impact
on human psychology. Reviewing studies conducted by various experts revealed interesting parallels with my own experiences.These studies focused on interactions with fish in home or public aquariums, often assessing effects on anxiety, relaxation, and psychological stress. Results consistently showed positive outcomes, including improved mood, reduced stress, and enhanced cognitive engagement. Personally, I found solace and fascination in spending time with the ecosystems I had created, especially after taxing days at my clinic. Over time, Zen Aqua Solutions, with its custom nature aquarium designs, played a pivotal role in making nature aquariums more commonplace in medical practices, elderly care facilities, and clinics.
