• Welcome to ScapeCrunch!

    We are a friendly, online community of people interested in planted aquariums. We support and help each other learn and grow. It is our sincere hope that you will join us and find our tight-knit community valuable and fun!

    ScapeCrunch is different than Facebook Groups. Here's how:

    • It is a place where you can make long-term friends in the planted aquarium hobby and have long, multi-day talks on specific subjects.
    • Unlike social media, online communities like ScapeCrunch are much better at curating collective knowledge and in fostering deeper relationships.
    • They lend themselves better at long-form discussions.
    • You can maintain a thread on your personal aquarium with pictures and details. Other members can comment, help and ask questions. You can do the same with their Member Tank threads.

    Where Facebook is more like a large city-wide party, ScapeCrunch is more like your neighborhood bar "where everybody knows your name. And they're always glad you came." It's always fun to go to large parties but it's at the local bar that you feel people really know you. The great part is that you can and should go to both!

    Please consider joining to become a full fledged member of our growing community of planted aquarium obsessed enthusiasts. Let's grow together!

    Join Us!

    We have posted all of the results that were judged. We are very happy with the participation and quality of contestants that decided to enter the very first aquascaping contest dedicated to a specific style. On behalf of everyone involved, I once again want to thank the contestants and the judges for graciously giving of their time and talent.

    We did have quite a few entries that the judges felt were not in the garden style and, hence, were not judged. For the most part, these entries were fantastically beautiful examples of other styles of aquascaping. We thank them for sending in their entries and hope they understand why they were not included in the final results.

    As we look forward, we would appreciate any and all feedback from the community. Should we make this contest an annual event? Can it be improved somehow?
