Awhile back I asked the a question, "why do you participate in aquascaping competitions" and from the responses most people said they wanted to see how they ranked compared to their aquascaping counterparts. Now not all aquascapes are made with the purpose of being critiqued and entered into aquascaping competitions. Well, wait a second. Maybe some of you create several scapes and then pick the best one for the competition? Early on, my personal motives of aquascaping was more to illicit responses from online communities then by my real life house guests who see the tank in person. In a way my motives to create a scape was for the "glamor" that was created/received from the aquascaping communities. Later on, I started to aquascape more so for myself and went with the things I liked instead of changing a scape to meet the comments from my online friends. So the discussion question here is, who do you aquascape for? :idea: -John N.
