    I thought I heard George Farmer mention at the end of one of his videos that he may be scaping a tank at the Abyss Stockport. I think it was the long version of the plant triming video on the Green Aqua site. Has anyone heard anything about this?

    Hi @Onoma1 ,

    I also heard him say something like that. If I can find the right video, I'll let you know.

    Hi @Onoma1,

    Found it! Here is the video (go to about 9:30):



    As you will see / hear, it was not definite at that point.

    Brill. I hope he decides to come. It would be great to be able to view one of his scapes "in the flesh". I remember going to the Green Machine in Wrexam to see two of their remainig scapes just before they closed. It felt like a very different experience to watching them on youtube.

    Hi, I spoke with the Abyss Aquatic Warehouse this morning and there's provisional plans to organise a big event this summer - my intention is to help with some aquascaping activities. Stay tuned to their Facebook page for details!

    Cool @Arana. Just give the shop a call to book your place, if you haven’t done so already.

    No charge, it’s just that place numbers are limited. Should be a brilliant day :)

    Damn...
    Was hoping for the Abyss.
    Crowders is a little too far from L'pool for me.

    Thanks for the info nevertheless!

    I am booked for Crowders, it is my LFS. A nice couple, Kaz and Rocky running it, they are always very helpful.

    I suspect it’s up to Stockport - perhaps give them a call

    George Farmer recently posted the Crowders event on his FB
