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.

There are eight main talks, including both halves of Nick Klase on LED lighting, keynote speaker George Farmer, dirt expert Phil Edwards, Cavan interpreter Sean Murphy, Tom Barr, and Rachel O'Leary.
In addition, we've also got a highlight reel of the aquascaping workshop, and a 40-minute edit of the Iron Aquascaper challenge. Finally, three of the micro-talks are preserved (audio and slides only).
If you missed part (or all) of the convention, do yourself a favor and buy this disk. If you've got Blu-Ray, buy it in high-def for the same price!.
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.
