Adding to the recommendations... Before taking off on amphibs, turn on to the runway, stop, look around and take in the site picture. Set there for a minute or two and realize how high you are above the ground and what it's going to look like when you are flaring to land. Many pilots find themselves over or under estimating their altitude when they flare.
like mentioned before, the nose gear is fragile and should be treated that way.... hold the controls back as hard as you can (all the time) and protect the little nose gear.
that's my two cents.
