CIPS 2017: I’m sure you haven’t seen Aquascapings like those
It’s very hard to choose one Aquascaping for main picture of the today article, because we have seen some wonderful aquariums.

The CIPS 2017 has been a continuous surprise. It’s a pity that there wasn’t any italian to represent our country. And probably our friends from ITAU (Italian Aquascapers Union) would have liked it, even just as spectators.
As you already know (or otherwise we’ll tell you right now) in these exhibitions there are a lot of rocks, sand, roots and any other useful material that the competitors can take to create an hardscape, before, and an aquascape after. All the competitors have the same possibilities to set up. They begin and create their beautiful work.
When we were there some aquascapers were still at work, so we couldn’t take a picture of 4 or 5 tanks because they were incomplete. But the others are enough representative.
There were challenging chinese, asian, some european and brazilian artists. I’m not an expert, but I think there’s a big difference between asian and european aquascapings. Let’s see if at the end of these pictures you’ll think the same.
The Aquascaping of CIPS 2017
Chinese artists had their own name in ideograms… Due to the difficulty to report them correctly, we associated the competitor’s picture with his own Aquascaping. They’re in order of photograph.
I know, there are a lot of pictures of the aquascapings. But how could we exclude one? And which one do you like the most?
