New aquatics show grows daily!


The size and scale of the Aquatics Live show set for November is growing day by day, as names such as Tetra, Hagen, Reef One and Ark Aquatics all confirm their attendance.

The show takes place at London’s Olympia from November 19-20 and visitors will have plenty to see, including the latest in aquarium design from Sublime Acquarico and Coventry Aquatics and hear about the latest developments in nutrition from Tetra’s Rupert Bridges.

The Clubs and Associations Pavilion will feature FBAS and many national organisations, which will have their own stands. They will act as a point of contact for existing members and hopefully sign-up a whole new generation of enthusiasts.

George Farmer and Dan Crawford from UKAPS have been working closely with the organisers to develop the aquascaping activities. These will include

  • a 10-tank competition
  • a UKAPS stand with its own displays by skilled members
  • the opportunity for visitors to design their own aquascapes with help and advice from the experts
  • a junior zone where youngsters can create their own underwater worlds under the guidance of UKAPS designers

Shrimp expert Chris Lukhaup will be joining George and Dan on the stand as a competition judge and there’s no doubt that the world-famous aquatic explorer Heiko Bleher won’t be able to resist putting his head round the corner!

And talking of Heiko he’ll be presenting his own seminars both for beginners in the morning and experts in the afternoon, as will Chris Lukhaup.

They’ll both be on the panel for Q and A sessions at the end of each day, alongside other presenters such as PFK editor Jeremy Gay and Tetra’s Rupert Bridges.

Heiko (pictured below) will also be signing books on the Aquapress stand!
