Love this podcast

I’m new to aquascaping. Great project with my son. Been doing tons of research and came across George’s videos on YouTube which is how I heard about his podcast. His podcast is very informative and takes you through every step of the process for novices like me. Have listened to episodes multiple times. Highly recommend.

Straight Forward, Knowledgeable and Clear Scape On'

George and Emma definitely put in work in thier podcasts. George will start with his experience and Emma will ask questions which I feel, I myself would ask. I really enjoy these podcast I listen to them at work. My favorite part is that there is no rambling on tangents. Thank you both.

A Pleasure to listen to and learn about an incredible hobby

I have had aquariums of all sizes and stocked with fish, corals, and a mixture of both. I was hesitant to dive into aquascaping due to the complex nature of the process. I credit George with making my learning experience fun and easy to understand. I just purchased a UNS 90U and am excited to go through the process and try my hand at aquascaping. Thanks George for your friendly attitude and commitment to people succeeding at this amazing hobby.
