    Hi guys,

    As usually, I'm not sure what is the best place to post this... Below are first three albums of my photos made during InterZoo 2012 zoological fair in Nürnberg, Germany. This is the biggest zoological fair in Europe, and second biggest in the whole World! (the first one is Aquarama in Singapore, I think :) )

    There is a small comment for each photo, so you can get better idea of how the whole event looked like:

    Photo-report from InterZoo 2012, Nürnberg - part 1

    Photo-report from InterZoo 2012, Nürnberg - part 2

    Photo-report from InterZoo 2012, Nürnberg - part 3

    The fourth album is on its way, and obviously there will be many videos, as I went to Nürnberg to film, not to take photos :) Enjoy!

    (and if you want, please like my new Facebook page :) )

    Cheers,

    Piotr K.

    Is it me or the planted aquarium aquascapes look simple? That's not to say their not good, but very minimal (I guess that's the word).

    This one is my favorite of them all. Unforuntately the water looks cloudy (probably from being recently set up).

    Yeah, they were very minimal, and not pregrown at all. However, those layouts cought my eye - there is something in them, they remind me of a natural biotope af fast flowind stream, where you have only large stones and single groups of plants scattered between them. And the moss & cardinal tetras tank was indeed cloudy because of an early set up :)

    these are real nice. Bit too much on the equipment front but the scapes look great.

    That's a strange pick of aquascapes Garuf. They do look nice, but something about them doesn't make them stand out compare to the rest.

    I dunno, to me they're much more interesting than a lot of the others, they're much better executed and to me have a higher level of charm.

    I wish we had really cool events like this over here. Unless I am unaware of them. The first scape is nice. I feel like its missing something though. Reminds me of the scape Mr. Amano made recently at that skytower.

    Hi guys,

    First bunch of videos from the veeeery long series about aquariums of InterZoo 2012:

    Sera (the largest aquarium of the fair):




    Hagen (stylish nanoaquariums Fluval Spec, Edge and Chi):




    AquaEl (aquarium inspired by Euro 2012 football championship):




    Stoffels International (the smallest planted aquarium of the fair):




    Schuran (Plexiglass aquariums with jellyfish):

    Aquarium Systems/Newa & Arcadia (marine aquariums with captive bred jellyfish):




    Each video about 2:30 mins. Tell me what you think - maybe it's better to make longer videos, each showing several booths together…?

    And also another question - are you interested in aquariums other than planted ones...?

    Cheers,

    Are sera trying to stage a coup or something, over here they're barely used at all, are the big in europe?

    I don't know about anyone else but at first I was indifferent towards fluvals edge series but I genuinely can't stand the things after recently visiting my lfs and got chatting with one of the staff and they were saying they were getting lots of calls from people saying their fish were dying in them, the common symptom being gasping and being impossible to maintain using the traditional ideas monthly water changes, unable to get a gravel cleaner in etc. The shop was saying they're sick of people complaining about them.

    Did Oliver knott scape every tank at this show? They all to me at least, feel influenced by him if he didn't!

    I'm excited to get my hands on the new plants from stoffel!

    I quite fancy starting a reef too, now. There should be more reefs on here I think!
