I wanted to post a follow up to the Iron Aquascaper
contest and show a picture of Wayne Sham, the winner, with his trophy. As you may recall, the Iron Aquascaper
was APC's first aquascaping challenge.
The challenge was to create an aquascape within a 10 gallon aquarium using Rotala indica (rotundifolia) as the theme. This is a tall order as you not only need to establish an aquascape that is algae-free within a very short amount of time, but you also need to make sure that the theme plant is healthy and plays a major part of the aquascape. This takes create skill and hard work. As such, we new only a brave few would enter. We just wanted to be different than the many aquascaping contests out there.
Well, Wayne answered the challenge and proved victorious. He truly is an Iron Aquascaper
This is Wayne's winning entry:
This is the coveted Iron Aquascaper
And, finally, this is THE Iron Aquascaper
Congratulations Wayne! You deserve it.
