AGA's Aquatic Experience Wrap-Up


I had an awesome time and am still recovering from working the AE for the Aquatic Gardeners Association this past weekend. I met a bunch of hobbyists at the convention and was really excited to meet so many in the Chicago region who were keeping planted tanks or who were interested in learning more about this aspect of the hobby. I was also able to watch the aquascapers work the live competition for both the small and large tanks for competition and some of the tanks were absolutely stunning. There were many first time aquascapers and some more advanced contestants, but everyone did a great job. Made my job as a judge REALLY hard!

Although I didn't get to walk around as much as I would have liked, I still got a chance to visit with some of the vendors and even had time to buy some shrimp. I also had a chance to drool over the beautiful Aquavas setup next to the AGA booth that's being sold by the Aquarium Design Group. I will be thinking about ways to get that into my house for the future.

Anyway, I think it would be fun to get people together to exchange plants or livestock and talk shop outside of just the swap meets. We definitely have the numbers for it!

I would be interested as I find myself learning something new everyday on this site. Plus it would give me some time away from these meddling kids of mine!
