Aqua-Spectacular: The Beautiful Underwater World of Aquascaping

Aquascaping 1

Aquascaping is the art of arranging aquatic plants, fish, rocks, stone and wood in an aesthetically pleasing manner within an aquarium. This craft is truly a unique blend of science and art. To excel in this area, one must not only possess creative imagination and flair but also an understanding of filtration, how to maintain optimal carbon dioxide and lighting levels for healthy photosynthesis and how to keep algae under control.

Patience is a must for aquascapers as these beauties can take many months or sometimes years to fully mature.

“To know Mother Nature is to love her smallest creations.” –Takashi Amano
