His specialty is Dutch Aquascaping, as typified by his ten-foot-long 260-gallon award-winning aquarium. In 2015 he won the 3rd prize in the category “Dutch Aquascape” of the Aquatic Gardeners Association International Aquascaping Contest.

Hi All,

Tuesday evening is just around the corner! If you are into aquascaping you do not want to miss our next meeting. Even if you prefer a 'Nature Style' aquariums, or just want to learn a little more layout basics, the same rules for Dutch Aquariums are used for most designs such as perspective, 'Golden Ratio', and 'Rule of Thirds'.

If you need further enticement one of our GSAS Sponsor Stores generously donated a nice 3-1/2 gallon Nano tank as a door prize!

Hope to see you there!
-Roy

Hi All,

It was a great talk at GSAS last night, about 80 folks showed up for an almost 2 hour presentation on Dutch aquariums and aquascaping.

Next month another great speaker, this time from the East Coast - Rachel O'Leary (aka msjinkzd) will be doing a talk on Nano tanks and possibly a 'Bonus Talk' on invertebrates and/or freshwater shrimp!

Hi All,

For those of you that wanted to see the Bart Laurens presentation in it's entirety (yes the entire 2 hour version!) it was recorded by Erik Olson at GSAS and is available on the Aquatic Gardeners Association (aquatic-gardeners.org). I believe you have to be an AGA member ($22 year) to be able to stream the 2017 Convention video ($20) or purchase the Blu-Ray video of the ($36).
