Speaker Presentation by Kris Weinhold
Kris Weinhold grew up keeping aquariums, but really fell in love with planted aquariums several years ago, diving head-first into researching and experimenting with various plants, growing techniques, and aquascape designs. Kris is a past-president of the Greater Washington Aquatic Plant Association (GWAPA), and has published articles in The Aquatic Gardener (www.aquatic-gardeners.org). He also maintains a website/blog (www.guitarfish.org) showcasing his aquarium and nature photography, and his informative articles on aquarium keeping and aquatic plant ecology (check out his excellent Planted Aquarium Guide).
Kris’s talk “Aquascaping Design & Ecology” will cover lighting, substrate, plant selection, nutrient and CO2 needs, and aquascape design aspects. Regardless of whether you’re a high-tech aquascaper seeking a horticultural masterpiece, or you just want to grow healthy plants au naturale to improve water quality for your fish and shrimp, Kris’s talk will provide the information you need.
