Aquascaping - Aquarium Ideas from Aquatics Live 2012, part 4

FACEBOOK: http://www.facebook.com/DefiniteAquascapeTV YOUTUBE: http://www.youtube.com/DefiniteAquascapeTV PAGE: http://definiteaquascape.tv Fourth video with aquascapes from Aquatics Live 2012, an aquarium and terrarium show held in London. I present planted aquariums arranged for live aquascaping contest. Most of the tanks are arranged as "two hills and clear path in the middle" layouts. There is no LED lighting used, nor CO2 supply systems or aquarium plant fertilizers - only standard Tetra aquarium equipment (aquariums are provided by Tetra). There are also no aquarium fish here, because the whole event was too short, and there was no point of introducing fish. Lots of aquatic plants were used, mostly Hemianthus callitrihoides, Pogostemon helferi, Anubias sp, Microsorum sp., Vallisneria and various Cryptocorynes.

I think it migh be ADA Hornwood - but it's also possible that it's just a normal driftwood, maybe even found in some european marsh...

I would love a piece of driftwood like the pice in Tony Swinney's beautiful tank, do you know what it is? Please keep these videos going by the way, its so nice to be able to compare several aquascapes that all originated from the same tank yet are all so different and individual!

Lol Canada does aquarium shows too, I don't get why Americans can't do one. Maybe spending too much money on tanks and stuff

That is really surprising for me, because US is rather known as "energetic" country (I mean, people are open-minded and dynamic)... And there are lots of hobbyists around, and they are also quite active, judging by the number of US-based aquatic forums...

I think we have a lot of good companies in America too, like API, but no one has actually wanted to make an event, there are facilities available for such events, but there just isn't much energy put into creating it. Sad too because there are so many different ideas and hobby tips available.

Hey mate, thanks for your nice words! :) Yup, I'm from Poland, and I think lots is going on our "Aqua Szene" :) Right now the trend for aquarium exhibitions is the biotope aquarium - but we also have lots of talened aquascapers, who arrange nice "aquarium gardens" :) Grüße aus Breslau! ;)

Danke für die tollen und neuen Ideen. Du bist doch Pole, oder ?? Ihr habt in Polen eine große Aqua Szene ?? Hab aus der Ecke schon viele gute Sachen gesehen... Grüße von der Ostsee ;)

No mate, we have lots of people using dirt in the substrates, too :) But the tanks which are exhibited at such events usually don't have such substrate, so it's not a problem at all :) Actually, I'm really curious why there are not so many events like this in the US... Maybe the distance is a problem? I mean, in Europe the "concentration" of hobbyists is far larger per square km than in the US, so it's easier to transport all the stuff to one place...

I think the reason we don't have events in the US such as you have in Europe is that a lot of us Americans are stuck on trying to add dirt to their substrates! I will inevitably get a lot of flack about this comment but I see it all the time, and perhaps the Walsted method does work for a while but I don't see European hobbyist latching on to this concept, and yet the tanks even in a show setting far exceed any of the tanks with dirt I have seen on the web posted by US hobbyist.

Hehe, what you are talking about is sometimes arranged - I mean, participants in some contest have to choose hardscape elements provided by the organizers, and arrange them in the best way they can. But in case of this contest, participants take everything from home. Equipment, tanks, water and substrate are provided by the organizers.
Deborah Armstrong

I'm curious as to the parameters of the contest. Obviously the organizers supplied the tanks--did they supply anything else? Or did the contestants have to organize everything on their own ahead of time? Personally, I think it would be very interesting if: --contestants were allowed say, 4 non plant items 'from home' --got mystery items in a "starter pack" from the organizers that they HAD to use --were encouraged to use 'found on-site' items --had a list of 'approved' plants

DefiniteAquascapeTV - 8 years ago
Maybe because you guys keep lamenting that there are no such events in the US, instead of just organize such an event YOURSELF :) You are one of dozens of Americans who, when watching my videos, complain that there are no such events in the US. Why don't you guys do something to make it happen? We do it in Europe, you can do it in the States! :) It's not difficult at all.

Aquatics Live is organized every year in November in the Olympia Hall in London, UK. It lasts for two days, and it's over now, so next time you'd be able to visit it is next year. But there are many other interesting shows across Europe, plenty to choose from :)

W Niemczech? A co to jest? Jakieś miasto w Alabamie? (skoro mają tam Birmingham... ;) ). Innymi słowy - Amerykańce nie wiedzą jakie wystawy są w Niemczech. Bo kto im ma to pokazać? Jak sam nie pojadę i nie sfilmuję, to nie będą wiedzieli, bo jeśli są jakieś materiały to po niemiecku :) (Ty, a w Niemczech są jakieś fajne wystawy? Pomijając Hannover?)

W Ameryce takich imprez nie mają? Rany, to jak oni reaguja na wystawy np. w Niemczech, bo te dopiero miazdzą.

Wiem dobrze co masz na myśli - mi też idzie łatwiej robienie polskich wersji, ale jednak grono odbiorców wersji angielskich jest o wiele większe :) No i można pokazać zagranicznikom poziom naszej polskiej akwarystyki, Amerykańcom na przykład gały wychodzą na wierzch z zazdrości jak widzą jakie zajebiste wystawy potrafimy zrobić :) ZooBotanika ich zmiażdżyła, oni w życiu takich imprez u siebie nie mają :)

Ja akurat problemu z językiem angielskim nie mam, ale oglądając twoje filmiki wolę się zrelaksować i dowiedzieć na luzie, a nie że będę co chwilę zatrzymywał, żeby przemyśleć co mówiłeś. Niemniej jednak, czekam na kolejne produkcje :)

Bo mam milion innych filmów do zrobienia, nie licząc tego, że muszę najpierw skończyć tą serię, potem jeszcze ZooBotanikę 2012 w wersji angielskiej (dopiero 4 odcinki zrobione, z 10 ogółem). Zrobienie komentarza zajmuje strasznie dużo czasu, a mój angielski jest na tyle prosty, że Polacy nie powinni mieć większych problemów ze zrozumieniem. Uczta się ludzie języków obcych ;)
