The most characterizing event, like we highlighted at the beginning, it has been the competition between the two teams. ITAU on one side and FACT on the other. ITAU means Italian Aquascapers Union, while FACT stands for French Aquarium Creation Team.

They are for real two pieces of art. In the following photos they’re put side by side.

At the end the guests’ vote sanctioned the victory for the italian team ITAU with the aquarium that you can see on the left, curated by Fabio Lorusso, Enrico Fortuna and Giuseppe Nisi.

But I think that the victory has gone to the aquariology in general, thanks to what it has been able to create.

In addition to Gaia Italia, Equo and Anubias, even Newa has been a sponsor of the manifestation and it had its corner right next to the prepared aquascapings.

So we could admire also some aquascaping in the new Mirabello and Newa More, in addition also to a little nanoreef.

We have already spoken about the news, and in a deep way, during the report of the exhibition in Norimberga, that you can read again here. Today we just make you see what it’s possible to create in these small aquariums.

And the result, in my opinion, it’s really remarkable.
