Re: [APD] If you could tell your LFS....

I'd probably drop the last two -- too out of date & too
many errors; add Tropica's or The Aquarium Plant Handbook
from Oriental Aquarium.

And then add something good on the basics like Ben Bolton's
"The Basics," although I'm not sure about the availability
yet -- the AGA was giving it away at the ACA convention in

good luck, good fun,

A little over 1 month to go. The deadline for submissions to the AGA Aquascaping contest is September 15. What are you waiting for?

Entries are only $5 and for that half a sawbuck you can have your AGA entry automatically entered in the ADA (Aqua Design Amano) contest for free, a savings in time and shipping costs!

Share the fun; show your work.
The AGA's 6th Annual International Aquascaping Contest is open.
