The Art of the Planted Aquarium 2012, live aquascaping contest - part 1

The Art of the Planted Aquarium is a live aquascaping contest, held every year during Heimtiermesse in Hannover, Germany ( In the first part of the report I present aquariums which took first 5 places in the XL category (dimensions of aquariums: 100x50x50cm). There are no fish in the contest tanks - only aquarium plants, driftwood and stones. This is done on purpose, as fish would distract the viewers from admiring the aquascapes.

The winners (next 5 places - Part 2):

1st place - Volker Jochum, Germany; 2nd place - Tobias Fricke, Germany; 3rd place - Georg W. Just, Germany; 4th place - Adrie Baumann, Germany; 5th place - Piotr Dymowski, Poland.
