The 2016 UK Aquascaping Championship took place on Saturday, October 15 at J & K Aquatics, in North Petherton, Somerset.
 

The final was in the form of a live ‘scape off, with finalists selecting their hardscape materials and then ‘scaping throughout the day until 3.45pm. The UK Aquascaping Champion was decided by a judging panel and public vote. Stephen Rhodes, who was also in the final last year, created a ‘scape called ‘Snake Pass’ to win the contest.

Stephen won a bespoke Clear-Seal aquarium to the value of £850, £250 cash and sponsor goodies.
