A must-listen for aquascapers!

As a new aquascaper doing all the research I can before jumping in, George’s podcast has been absolutely invaluable. Each episode is straight to the point and packed with a ton of incredible information.

Emma is lovely and has a real knack for asking exactly the questions I’m wondering. You two make a great team and I can’t wait for season 2!

Awesome

I’ve been following his advice sense starting in the hobby a year ago. With easy to follow directions and tips you will have a green lash aquascape in no time. Gives just the right amount of information to make the barrier of entry less complex. For those of you who are more interested in the science behind it he does also give links to further reading. My recommendation to all new listeners that are new to the hobby; don’t mix other aquascapers advise. Find one person like George and learn all that you can before trying new things or other ideas. There is many ways to achieve the same results but mixing and matching don’t work until you deeply understand the why behind each aspect. I made that mistake early on and my persistence is the only thing that keep me in the hobby. If you follow his advice it works great. Save the creativity for your scape. Happy scapping my friends. Don’t get discouraged, learn from your mistakes. :)
