Prior to the grand finale of the aquascaping competition "The Art of the Planted Aquarium", three regional contests are being held throughout the year 2014. The winners of these contests - the so called Qualifyings North, South and East - have the chance to participate in the finale, which is going to take place in Hanover at the Pet Fair in 2015.    

All three qualifyings have taken place by now, which means that all participants of the Hanover finale have been determined. Artful underwater landscapes, in the two categories Dennerle contest edition 35 l and EHEIM contest edition 250 l, have been created during this event. During the Qualifying South one of the few Wildcards have also been granted.

We would like to thank all participants an sponsors of this competition!

Not only the grand finale of The Art of the Planted Aquarium is taking place from February 13th to February 15th but also the international Shrimp Championship as well as the terrascaping competition The Art of the Planted Terrarium.
