Organization of the BIOTOPE AQUARIUM Contest (BAC) is an excellent way to involve aquarists into BIOTOPE SCIENCE. Through participation in the competition BAC-contestants enrich the biotope community with their knowledge on BIOTOPES IN NATURE (BIN), BIOTOPE AQUARIUM MODELS (BAM), fishes (FISH) and aquatic vegetation (PLANT).

The year 2020 was a very particular year – we launched the BIOTOPE AQUARIUM Project (BAP) on January 20st, and the global population had to confront the Covid-19 pandemics. Difficult time, for sure!

But BAP-team stayed focused and kept working hard. In 2020 BAP-Map has doubled its user’s data entries, the BAP Community has impressingly grown, while the BAC2020 was truly the best experience in 2020 – we worked with hundreds of passionate and knowledgeable people, aquarists and experts. Thank you so much to all our fans for your support and our sponsors for believing in our values!

The BIOTOPE AQUARIUM Contest is the best way to bring together aquarists and scientists in an effort to document and monitor the conditions of aquatic habitats, their inhabitants, water quality and possible introduction of alien invasive species that cause damage to native species, ecosystems and even to people. Public awareness and active involvement of the aquarists have an important role in contributing to the successful implementation of the biotope mapping worldwide.

Our goal is to get our aquarium hobby as close as possible to its origins, the natural biotope. To be EDUCATED BY NATURE. Like the BIOTOPE AQUARIUM Project.
