Aquarium plants, stones, and substrate take the spotlight 

Competing with aquascapes was a new event in 2022, and it has been a hit ever since!

Participants showcase their ability to create a harmonious aquatic environment:

  • Open to Creativity: Individuals or teams of two can showcase their aquascaping skills in a dynamic and open competition format.

  • Top-notch Equipment: Each contestant receives a complete setup, including a rimless aquarium, light, heater, and filter. 

  • Bring Your Style: Contestants can enhance their aquascape with their own hardscape and plants, allowing for personal flair and creativity.​

  • Exciting Awards Ceremony: Winners will be announced during the awards ceremony on Saturday evening, creating a thrilling culmination to the event.

  • Judging Criteria: Impress the pre-selected panel with your aquascaping prowess. Categories include Overall Impact, Composition, and Selection of Materials, providing a comprehensive evaluation.
