Aquascaping – Aquarium Ideas from Aquatics Live 2011, part 1


First part of more detailed report from Aquatics Live 2011 – an aquarium show organized on 19-20th November in the Olympia 2 hall in London. Many aquarium companies, UK fishkeepers’ forums and associations took part in the event. Their booths were located on two floors.

In this first episode I show aquariums at booths of AquaJardin, C.E. Fish Essentials, Star Fisheries, and also the booth of Crocodiles of the World, where no aquarium was displayed.

AquaJardin displayed two setups. The first one was a square and low planted tank, with Microsorum and a large group of Electric Blue Rams and Harlequin Rasboras. The second aquarium setup consisted actually of three small ADA Do Aqua! aquariums, put in one row, and decorated with one long piece of driftwood, cut into fragments fitting inside and between the aquariums. Plants were mostly Riccia fluitans, Staurogyne repens, Heminathus callitrichoides and Pogostemon helferi, with one reddish accent added by Rotala sp. Aquariums were stocked with freshwater shrimps Cristal Red, and with Nothobranchius rachovii killifish.

The company C.E. Fish Essentials is a dealer of various tropical fish food, mostly frozen. There was one aquarium at the booth of this company, stocked with Altum Angelfish and some Discus.

The company Star Fisheries is a “manufacturer” of fancy goldfish. There was one large aquarium at this booth, without any aquatic plants, just bare glass and glodfish.

And finally, the booth of Crocodiles of the world didn’t have any aquarium at all, but it had a plastic pool, where some crocodiles were kept. There was also a possibility to hold a juvenile crocodile for a while – an amazing attraction, especially for the kids! 🙂

I wish I could have one, but I’m constantly reminded of how stupid my servant is. I could never go on a vacation with one.
