Aquascaping Contest Fresh Fest Day of Judging

This aquascaping contest was a riot for me. I had a great time hosting an event where planted aquariums were the center while saltwater was all around.

This being typed from a hotel room where I was woken up at 5am by my neighbor next door fun. The guys at ReefaPalooza know how to throw a show. As a perk of being a vendor- Lou and Vic have sandwiches brought in as you can never seem to get good food at a trade show- He had extras and fed all of the competing aquascapers as well. Yesterday more people were around my area at the end than any other booths, many people saying "I can't believe these are freshwater tanks." Yes they are... Lots of people talking about how they want to go BACK to freshwater after seeing them. or setup another tank- and who doesn't need another tank. We had Wu-tang instrumentals playing the whole time as well. Keeping with the NY vibe. This was a real blast for me. I get to walk that nice line of not knowing if I am working or playing....setting up this show on Friday in less than 5 hours in a 20x 20 section WAS WORK, but the work is worth it. Tearing down is yet to come and a flight back to Lexington at 9. Is what it is. "If I could have any job in the world- what would it be?"

aye i've set up a 50 gallon mainly south american community planted tank and so far have 4 emerald cories, 10 neons, and 4 platys. i want to add more cories and neons, (and possibly a couple rams), but i really wanna get a good midsize centerpiece-higher-swimming fish... the two that come to mind are silver dollars and angels... although angels seem to have a lot of trouble with them. people recommend getting paired angels, but i dont want them to ever breed and get violently hostile. is one single angel plausible/good?

They are all just...awesome, so just picking a few is difficult. But, If I had to chose the top three it would go like this.

#8, #2 these two are very hard to decide which. Honestly I come back to it, and #2 looks better a bit so...it's almost even. Very hard between those two.
#5.
so...screw it.. #2 (1st),#8 (2nd), #5 (3rd) in the orders Dustin has shown.
Ok now to the #3. I'm like Dustin...I think that is the one I would want to go home with..and actually gave me a great idea for a Fiddler Crab tank. Love that look.
Also..the red rock one. #6 I believe. Love his use of the level of sand/gravel. Very nice for such a small tank.
All in all..I feel for Dustin and those helping judge(if anyone else is). These are some very good tanks. Grats to all involved.
Oh yea...FRESHWATER Rulez!

No Dustin's an ok go getter dude that has lots if good intel on fish, I wouldn't choke him! I was at HD yesterday getting 5 gallon buckets to store 110 lbs of malt for my beer making and saw their new tag line on the orange buckets "Lets do this"... I had the pleasure of getting put on hold when calling HD customer last week on the whereabouts of my new fish tank rack and had to listen to commercial after commercial of "lets do this." When I saw the bucket I screamed "Lets not!"

I live in Syracuse, ny. and surprisingly there's a lot of aquarist. but little to no aquascapers, and the ones that do don't always know why what there doing works. bringing a competition here would be a great way to open peoples opinions to aquascaping, and give them the knowledge (or a great guy to follow and learn from as I have) to expand into the art.  I would definitely be able to bring my ten just for show, and hopefully compete.

Third tank shown is gonna look amazing one that is all grown in. Hardscape is always the backbone of an amazing planted tank since the plants will always fill in the rest.
