Want to know what it takes to be an aquascaping master? If so, join us for our next monthly meeting Saturday, March 4, 7:00pm.
Phil Nixon will give a presentation on the entries in the third annual Aquascaping Live! Contest sanctioned and presented by the Aquatic Gardeners Association (AGA) and sponsored by Fluval. Contestants competed in two categories (Small or Large Tank) for $3,900 dollars in prize money at Aquatic Experience, Schaumburg, IL on November 4-6, 2016. There were 22 Small Tank entries by individuals with the only requirement being the payment of an entry fee. Each participant was provided a 7.9 gallon Fluval tank. There were also ten entries in the Large Tank category as an AGA Team Invitational. These were constructed in 34 gallon Fluval tanks. We will look at the entries along with other aquascaped tanks exhibited at Aquatic Experience and discuss their design and plants.
Regulary scheduled monthly meetings are held the 1st Saturday of each month (except January and July) at 7:00pm in the Plant Sciences Laboratory, Room 1125, on the University of Illinois campus. Directions are available on our Monthly Meetings page. Meetings are free and open to the public. Doors open at 6:45.
