The AGA's Sixth Annual International Aquascaping Contest is open!
Enter more than once. Enter entirely electronically!
So, get some fresh alkalines for the camera, clean the glass front, back and sides, remove the filter tubes and burping clam, and start snapping the shutter.
Not ready for picture taking yet? There's still plenty of time for planning, planting, pruning before the Septbember 15, 2005, closing date for entries.
