Further to a discussion on one of the Lad’s Xmas presents (a fishtank upgrade), meloukhia from this ain’t livin’ and FWD/Forward (Feminists with Disabilities) pointed me to this article on “aquatic gardening”: fishtanks that concentrate not so much on the fish, but on the landscaping. Aquascaping, that is.
Who says an aquarium has to be all about fish? All over the world, planted aquarium enthusiasts practice the art of underwater gardening — creating lush, natural-looking landscapes that live in the confines of a tank. These hobbyists communicate via the Internet, trading plants and information. They also trade pictures of their tanks. Each year the Aquatic Gardeners Assn., a group of enthusiasts 1,300 strong, holds a contest to name the best tanks in the world.
A couple more of my favourites:
Anyone here got a fishtank or pond? What’s in your tank?
