Hi guys,

As some of you probably know, there was a large aquascaping contest organized 2 weeks ago in Hannover, Germany, called "The Art of the Planted Aquarium". This contest is organized every year, during the zoological fair "Heimtiermesse". The quality of the aquascapes there is outstanding, and improving every year, so I visited this event, and did a lot of filming. Here are first three movies, showing tanks which took places 1-5:

...places 6-10:

...and some tanks which didn't take any place, but I think they are worth showing, too:

Other movies from The Art of The Planted Aquarium 2012 aquascaping contest coming soon! :)

Cheers,

Thanks! :) It would be great if the player could be embedded in the posts - this would look better than just links, I mean - more eye-catching :)

Cheers,

thanks for sharing... I've been looking for something like this for a while now :)
You mean - videos with some interesting aquascapes? If yes - do you know the ADA YouTube channel "aquadesignamano"? There are many great planted aquariums there, and I'm really surprised that each video is getting only 1,5-3k views on the average... They deserve a lot more IMHO...

great videos. thanks for sharing

but, if you dont mind me asking, why are fish not allowed in these tanks. Its my opinion that fish are finishing touches that all great aquascapes need to be complete.

Well, I'm not 100% sure that fish are really disallowed by the judges... It might be something like "a tradition" of this contest, more like a custom than a strict rule... However, what I know, is that the organizers think that the fish would distract the viewers from the aquascapes... And fish could also cause some troubles - if one of them dies, for example, then the whole layout would be aesthetically ruined...
