Aquascaping is the craft of arranging aquatic plants, as well as rocks, stones, driftwood, in an aesthetically pleasing manner within an aquarium. Aquascape designs include a number of distinct styles, including the garden-like Dutch style and the Japanese-inspired nature style. Aaquascape houses fish as well as plants, although it is possible to create an aquascape with plants only, or with rockwork or other hardscape and no plants. Although the primary aim of aquascaping is to create an artful underwater landscape, the technical aspects of tank maintenance and the growth requirements of aquatic plants are also taken into consideration.
Durvesh GaikarCreative Head - Aquascaper
I have been in advertising for more than 10 years now as a Creative Director. Why Aquascaping? It's all about the right and aesthetic arrangement of rocks, and driftwood that helps create an illusion of underwater landscapes and wonderful fish habitats. The first aquascape that I created was called Monsoon Bloom in 2014, and won Central India Award at the The Great Indian Aquascaping Contest. And managed to repeat that feat in 2015 & 2016, when my aquascape won the India People's Choice award.
