Planted Aquarium Journals
In this section you will find my personal journals of planted aquariums, personal accounts of events, and inteviews with people I have met in our hobby. I have been fortunate to attend many events in our wonderful aquarium hobby. In doing so, I get have met wonderful people and visited wonderful places. Along the way I do my best to document events as I experience them.
This year, AquaFest was held in Laurel, Maryland. AquaFest is a collaboration between PVAS, GWAPA, and CCA. This was my first time attending AquaFest and I was also going to be speaking at the event.
