This is my first year on International Aquascaping contests and my second year as an Aquascaper. Last year I made my first aquascaping, loved it, and decided to learn more about it, so I looked for some books and studied with Mr Andre Longarço and Lucca Galarraga to learn everything I could and apply in this scaping. I´m now Looking forward to learn from the judges comments to improve my skills, but mainly Aquascaping is a way to have "my time" relaxing, admiring and learning with the nature and the aquascaping hobby.
