Preface – Laurent Garcia

Welcome to Aquarilis website

For a long time, I’ve been passionate about nature and aquaristics, and I was quickly caught by aquascaping. This discipline, which is too little known in France, involves creating natural landscapes in aquariums, and is therefore: the artistic branch of aquaristics.

I was several times distinguished for my work on the international stage, notably ranked 28th in the world at the IAPLC 2017 and 4th in Europe at the Eaplc, key competitions in the field of aquascaping. Then, I founded Aquarilis in early 2016 to offer my expertise in the field of aquatic design.

The aim of what I do is to help promote this discipline, while recalling the values of aquarists in general, as we are dealing with the themes of water, nature, and life… not to mention the soothing powers of an aquarium on those who contemplate it.

As of March 30, 2020, Aquarilis has more than 12,000 followers on Facebook and 70,000 subscribers on its YouTube channel. We are also present on other online media.

Photos and videos are good, but nothing beats the pleasure of contemplating an aquarium just a few inches away. That’s why I suggest you meet me regularly at aquarium events, and in places reserved for artistic exhibitions. All you must do is subscribe to the newsletter.

You can also visit my Showroom / Shop at the core of Paris, in the 16th arrondissement. Sixty square meters entirely dedicated to aquatic design and aquascaping. We can also meet there to discuss your future project!

Many customers have already placed their trust in Aquarilis. Are you ready to take the leap?

Enjoy your visit to the website and see you soon!
