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.
