Superbowl Not Competitive Enough? Try Underwater Aquarium Design

Superbowl Not Competitive Enough? Try Underwater Aquarium Design

The International Aquatic Plants Layout Contest is a colosseum of creative competition. Receiving over 2,164 entries from 57 countries, this competition is not for the faint of heart. Acuqascapers create subtle, dream-like settings underwater, resulting in wonderful moody landscapes (most of them counterintuitive to underwater habitats) any form of aqua life would be privileged to explore. There is something cognitive dissonance about seeing the desert in full bloom underwater, and all 164 designs are provocative and breathtaking. If 2013's finalists are any indication, this sport is just entering its prime. Hat tip to Colossal for the find.
