2015 IAPLC Grand Prize Winner

Here is AquaA3's report on the 2015 IAPLC aquascape rankings, complete with high resolution photos and a complete breakdown on this year's contest.  Holy @#%& are they ridiculously amazing!  This year featured a lot of aquascapes that successfully created an illusion of infinite front-to-back depth by using "forced perspective" arrangement of design elements - namely rocks, driftwood, and backlighting.

We share some of our favorites below.  These living artwork will make you feel very small and inadequete yet very inspired and proud of what man can imagine and create.

I'm a passionate aquarist of over 30 years, a coral reef lover, and the blog editor for Advanced Aquarist. While aquarium gadgets interest me, it's really livestock (especially fish), artistry of aquariums, and "method behind the madness" processes that captivate my attention.
