ScapeCrunch is written by me, Art Pennom. I’ve been in this hobby for more than 30 years, not only as a hobbyist but also in the business. I was the first person to import Aqua Design Amano products into the US, I founded & and was the host of the ScapeFu Podcast. I’m passionate about the planted aquarium hobby and bring that into my writing and reporting.
