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.
The 2017 AGA Aquascaping Contest results are now available for viewing. Record number of entries, over 600 this year! We've also done a little bit of redesign on the contest website so it's not quite as painful to view on phones.

Missed our excellent convention in Denver back in April? Or maybe just want to take another look at a talk in more detail? Video of the whole convention is now available!
Everyone has been bugging us to offer video online, so so new for 2017, we are offering unlimited online high-def streaming for only $20. If you prefer, you can add a traditional DVD set or Blu-Ray for a few bucks more.
Included are all five main speakers (Luca, Karen, Bart, Ghazanfar and Rachel), Luca's big demo (edited down to a very watchable one hour packed with nonstop tips on how to improve your own aquascaping), the Wabi-Kusa demo and workshop, highlights of the nano workshop, and seven micro-presentations.
We also included Bart Laurens' full two-hour presentation in Seattle, in addition to his truncated convention version. All in all, almost nine hours of stuff to watch!
