The inaugural Aquashella festival kicked off last weekend in Chicago and proved to be a one-of-a-kind aquarium show with its focus on aquaria from an artistic angle. In the aquarium world, “aquascaping\" is the artful placement of plants and corals inside a tank to create a living work of art. Aquashella took this concept and ran with it to produce a unique and immersive experience that could be appreciated by anyone interested in aquatic life. Having freshwater and saltwater enthusiasts under one roof gave us all an opportunity to learn from and be inspired by each other. We had a great time! If you weren’t able to make it to the show, check out this episode to see what you missed!
