Live Scape Off Champion crowned!

Stephen Rhodes won the live scape off on Saturday 15 October to be crowned the UKASC champion 2016. Dan Harris came second and Alexea Tonge & Hayley Sloman were joint third.

The live scape off started after scapers had selected their hardscape materials. They scaped throughout the day until the scape off closed at 3.45pm. The UK Aquascaping was decided by a judging panel and public vote. Stephen Rhodes, who was in the live scape off final last year, created a scape called ‘Snake Pass’ to win the contest.

Stephen won a bespoke Clear-Seal aquarium to the value of £850, £250 cash and sponsor goodies. Dan Harris, came second and won a Ciano Emotions Aquarium, £200 cash and sponsor goodies; Alexea Tonge and Hayley Sloman were joint third, the prize for third place was a Ciano Emotions Aquarium, £150 cash and sponsor goodies. All of the scapers in the live scape off got to keep their creations along with the Clear-Seal Edgeline.
