    Not sure if this is the right place to put this but is there any decent aquascaping reading material on the market as I'm trying to nerd-up on as much as possible before starting my first scape. Thanks :D

    Hi,

    Take a look at Takashi Amanos 'Nature aquarium world' books. They are a little dated now but I think im right in saying that they were the inspiration for a lot of us using this forum.

    Or take a look here http://www.cau-aqua.net/index.php?lang=en

    Enjoy

    Hi,

    The 5 English aquajournals are a great buy, you can get them from both our sponsors. All of the amano books.
    Have a look through our links page, there are quite a few links for good inspiration, planter posted just one of them.
    Have a look at the aquatic gardeners assosiation website and the compotitons, there are countless scapes to study and the judges comments are worth reading.

    Graeme.

    I've been looking at all the AGA competition entries from about 2000 onwards and all I can say is WOW!!!!
    Absolutely stunning scapes(including George's entries) :D

    Shameless plug time...

    Every month I feature a Great Planted Tank in PFK magazine. I interview talented aquascapers and photos of their tanks are featured. So far we've had Peter Kirwan (zig from UKAPS), Tom Messanger (UKAPS) and Roy Deki (US).

    Future features will include Steven Chong (US/Japan), Tom Barr (US), Dan Crawford (UKAPS founder) and plenty more.
