From back-to-basics cleanup and setups to professional aquascaping and shrimp setups

This event brings together a plethora of experts in the aquarium hobby to showcase and demonstrate different techniques and procedures to maintain and improve aquariums.

The main goal of this event is to educate newcomers and experienced keepers alike on several topics and skills that may not be easily accessible or shown in other ways.

We also want to demonstrate different products, techniques, and useful tips and tricks that would make the hobby more enjoyable and interesting.

One of the focus areas will also be to attract the younger generation by having mini-workshops for children, reaching out to local schools, and providing information on easy-to-keep aquariums.
