AquaScaping World Magazine is Back!
I know you all have been waiting patiently for the next latest and greatest issue of the AquaScaping World Magazine. I am proud to say we are back and better than ever!
ASW has high professional standards, and therefore we are switching from a monthly publication to a bi-monthly schedule to allow us ample time to develop the articles and magazine. With the extra time, you can be sure future articles will be more in-depth, more comprehensive, and touch extensively upon aquascaping techniques and activities from all over the world. Now, lets get right to it.
In this issue, youll find an array of aquascaping competition results from the Aqua Design Amano, International Aquatic Plant Layout Contest 2010 and the Aquabird Vietnam, Aquadesign Aquascaping Contest. This years participants have continued to push the bar in creativity and execution.
Our Aquascape in Focus for this issue comes from Italian Aquascaper, Pasquale Buonpane and his World Before Columbus layout. This layout achieved an impressive 106 ranking in the IAPLC 2010. Find out a little more about the aquascape and how you can make one yourself.
Also, the ADA Nature Aquarium Gallery in Japan is a must visit for any planted aquarium enthusiast. While many of us cant make the trip to Japan, we can live through BJ Rutternberg. He takes us on his adventure to the premier aquascaping headquarters.
Finally, planted aquarium promotion has made great strides in the United States through the Southern California Aquatic Plant Enthusiasts Club (SCAPE). SCAPE hosted an aquascaping booth at one of the largest fairs in Southern California, helping to draw new members to the hobby. Check out what they did, and maybe you can promote planted aquaria in your region too!
Happy Aquascaping everybody!
