The Aquatic Gardeners Association, Inc. is an international nonprofit organization of aquatic plant enthusiasts, which appeals to both beginners and experienced hobbyists alike. The AGA publishes a (paper) quarterly journal called The Aquatic Gardener (or TAG), the only English language journal devoted to aquarium plants and planted aquaria. AGA members receive a FREE subscription to TAG and all special publications. Members also can purchase back issues, DVDs, and t-shirts. We also hold a bi-annual convention and an online aquascaping contest.

Convention Disks available for Pre-Order + T-Shirts too!

The 2015 Convention is done, but the presentations live on, in our newest DVD or Blu-Ray. We will feature all of the main talks in multi-camera edit and split-screen with the slides digitally inserted as always, and crystal-clear sound from the mixing board. The mini talks will also be there (slides and audio). The aquascaping duel will be edited down to a watchable 30-45 minutes, and the nano workshop into something under ten. Yes, both parts of Nick's fascinating LED presentation will be included. Pre-order your copy at our disk sales page. (Remember: available to AGA members only.)

We also have convention T-shirts for sale if you missed picking one up, or missed the convention and still want one. Go to the AGA T-shirt page to get yours today.
