i always figured "Planted Aquascaping" was just plants, no fish.... While "Planted Tanks" would be fish/plant tanks.

"Aquascaping" is just underwater landscaping, or in other words a "Garden in a Tank"in my opinion but im probably wrong.... Would make sence tho.

Yeah I thought that too, aquascaping would be making the tank look cool, background, foreground plants, landscaping underwater!
Planted tanks would be help with plants and anything plant related, I guess the title is misleading?

Not that it is much of my business but I do agree. I dont use live plants in my tank but would love to talk about how to improve my aquascaping. But feel I have nowhere to post my thread.

Crepe you make a very good point, not all aquascaping is Plants, just like not all landscaping is only grass. after reading what you say, it makes prefect sense! :P

I would support such a change.
