Aqua Radio

I just pulled this off another forum..........

Greetings. is proud to announce that Mr. Jason Baliban, a noted aquarist and aquascaper, will be this week's guest speaker on "Sounds Fishy to Me." Jason Baliban has been an avid aquarist since 1980, starting with a 10 gallon aquarium and blue gravel. Since that time, he has worked with saltwater aquariums, freshwater aquariums, and planted tanks. Over the last 4 years, Jason has focused primarily on planted tanks, approaching each planted aquarium as a piece of art. He strives to create compositions that inspire himself and others, while providing healthy environments for his plants and critters. Jason's talent has been proven worldwide by placing 2nd in the Aquatic Gardener Association's 2008 Aquascaping contest, and was the 3rd highest ranked U.S. aquascaper in ADA's aquascaping contest during the same year. His work has been featured regularly, both online and in print, which has opened the door for him to give several presentations over the past 2 years. Jason also maintains a website, Project Aquarium, specifically dedicated to keeping planted aquariums.

Jason will be speaking on "Aquascaping and Photography" at Aquafest 2009 in Laurel, MD on October 17th. Visit: for additional information.

Some of the topics Jason will be covering are "Why Planted Tanks," Getting Started," Substrate," "Lighting," "CO2," as well as other related topics.

This is part 1 of a 2 part broadcast, the second of which will run next weekend. The second show will cover: "Nutrients," "Plant Selection," "Algae and Other Challenges," "Fish Selection" and "What's Ahead."

Additionally this broadcast will have information on the formation of the American Corydoras Society.

The show will air on Saturday, August 29th at 9 AM. 12 PM, 3 PM, 7 PM and 10 PM. Sunday, August 30th at 10 AM, 1 PM, 4 PM, and 9 PM. These are eastern U.S. times.

I've listened to Frank's show numerous times and he really does a great job getting informative speakers to interview. I posted this because this weeks topic is planted tanks and some may find it interesting.
