Aquascape Contest 2014


Hey Everyone!

I took some pics at this weekends Contest. It was great to see everyone's tanks from Wabi kusas, NPTs, Ripariums and iwagumis. I finally got to put a face to the members here on TPT. It was great meeting you guys and thanks again. Jojo says next contest is possibly March 2015. I have a few ideas for a new scape due to a surge of inspiration this weekend from seeing your great displays.

Mahalo,

Kai

It was very cool meeting some of the folks from the board and seeing the tank first hand. I'm going to have to up my game for next year. I was impressed with all the set ups, and just blown away by the winners (and good people).

Awesome tanks this year! It was nice to see the wabi kusa/riparium stuff included too. I'm definitely planning on entering something next year!

14, I think. There was no #1. The winners were all outstanding, but there were some really good non-traditional tank that deserved to be reconnection.

I enjoyed the show. Lots of talented local scapers that entered very beautiful displays. As a fellow planted tank geek, I can appreciate the work that goes into putting together these little gems. Hats off to all the entries and thank you to Jojo & Reina for hosting this event. Hope it inspired others into possibly entering the next show. Good fun!

Awesome job everyone. I think I'll enter the contest next year, my tank should be done then.

Anyone knows who's tank#8 was? I was interested to chat about that atomic Paintball CO2 regulator and it's performance, to see if it behaves anything like mines. Send them my TP user name for a PM. Thanks.

Wow, really nice tanks! I'm thinking of rescaping my tank to either look like #1 or #3.

Hi Char, sorry didn't get to see you @ the show. Had to work so, only went to set up, a quick check at the end of the day on Sat & break down on Sun. I was talking to the lady who had the #8 entry during set up and unless she was adopted, she didn't look like she's related to Jojo & Reina.
