Aquascapers of Sweden

During the autumn of 2015, Christian Brams and Tommy Vestlie both felt an urge to do something to further the aquarium hobby. After long nights of creative discussions during the winter, an idea emerged during the early days of spring. The two enthusiasts were going to create a Swedish aquascaping team. Both Christian and Tommy are aquascaping fanatics and wished to encourage this area of the hobby in Sweden. With the growing interest in aquascaping all over the world they felt that this was the perfect timing to realize their vision. The idea wasn’t only to gather a team of highly skilled aquascapers. For Tommy and Christian the key to a successful team was to include people with different experiences and qualities, not only limited to aquascaping. With such a team, each member would be able to utilize the unique competence of the other team members and thereby evolve as individuals. Tommy and Christian, who both has a wide network of contacts within the aquarium hobby, handpicked three fellow team members. This wasn’t done in a day, but rather with much consideration. Here we proudly present the five team members of Aquascapers of Sweden

Tommy Vestlie

14563389_1176913829018587_8008165734870431457_nTommy is a dedicated gentleman who has made an art of successfully having a lot on his plate. 

His energetic mind and social skills makes him our obvious choice as team captain. Tommy is fairly new to aquascaping, but with several years of aquaristic experience. 

He has developed his own unique style inspired by the Nordic primeval forests and in short time made a name for himself internationally.

Patrik Bäck  

14591733_1178345252208778_6914260320178360045_nPatrik is our magician.
His ability to form astonishing landscapes infused by emotions out of nothing is simply intriguing. 

Give him a couple of random rocks, some sand and odd plants – and he will deliver a piece of art. With a skilled eye for balance and composition he always gives sound advice to his team members.

Christian Brams

14612385_1179411425435494_1861580957244638959_oChristian is the bad boy of our team. And by “bad”, we of course mean having badass aquaristic experience. Christian is one of the most well-known faces of the Swedish aquarium hobby, having practiced his interest professionally for many years. 
Today he has a wide range of contacts stretching all over the world. Throughout the years, Christian has experimented with a number of scaping styles, always parading his pristinely healthy plants as the soul of his layouts. Christian also is a skilled photographer and designer, qualities also greatly contributing to the team.

Kim Pulkki

14682113_1184988988211071_8842931491857492254_oWith numerous years on the aquascaping scene, Kim is our professor. 

He is the team member with most experience competing, having achieved several high rankings in international competitions. 

His designs are mainly within the nature aquarium genre, often with a special love for different kinds of mosses.

Ulla von Lochow 

14706918_1185489471494356_6167109124995331790_oUlla is the queen of our team. With her Scandinavian scaping style, carefully paying attention to the impact of light and shadows, she creates tanks which the remaining members only dream about. 

While still somewhat of a rookie when it comes to scaping, she has mad skills in Botany and growing plants in terrariums.
