Filipe Oliveira Aquascaping Workshop at Aquarium Gardens

Filipe is back at Aquarium Gardens for another workshop! After the huge success of last years workshop when Filipe Oliveira aquascaped a 90cm Aquascaper 900 (still running in our showroom and one of the favorites!) he is back again but this time its BIGGER!

Watch Filipe aquascape our Aquascaper 1500 (biggest tank in our showroom) in a v-shape layout. I have edited down the 5 hour workshop to just under 30 mins - sorry if the video is too long! Particularly interesting is Filipes fertilization routine (0:14:04) which we will be adopting on this tank - different to our usual routine, but we want the stems to grow slow and colorful as possible!

We hope you enjoy this footage from the workshop. Please like and leave any comments or questions you have. We love seeing them and will answer all your Aquascaping questions about this workshop or anything else!

A big thank you to Filipe and Aquaflora for the workshop and one amazing aquascape we have in our showroom. I cannot wait to see how it develops in the coming months and will of course keep you all updated :-)
