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.
COVID-19 Update: As the AGA is mostly online anyway, we are conducting "business as usual", with one major exception: we are delaying shipments of purchased items (The Aquatic Gardener single issues, combos, and donations;tshirts; DVDs) so that our volunteers do not have to go to the post office and risk themselves or their community. You can still join or renew, and you'll get your items eventually, when the crisis is over. Thanks for understanding, and stay well and safe. Meanwhile, here's a sneak preview of the cover of TAG 33-1, currently in production.
