If aquascapers can be rock stars, Oliver Knott would be one. He’s a professional aquascaper and sports a mohawk. He oozes cool. In conjunction with the Dennerle guys, he gave a demonstration at Interzoo 2012. Please take a look at the tools he uses including the plants in the plastic container. We here, in the US, are so far behind … Read More

Our friends at AQA Espai Aquaris Naturals will be hosting the first ever (to my knowledge) aquascaping course for those of you in Barcelona. The class will be given by one of Spain’s best known and talented aquascapers, Jordi Pelegrí. This is a fantastic idea and should be copied by other vendors in other countries. Getting people into our hobby … Read More

Aquascape TV interview with George Farmer. I really like what they are doing with UKAPS. We need more of that in the US. Enjoy!
