Events Not to Miss: Kid’s Aquarium Contest

This year, the Aquatic Experience is thrilled to offer more than 61,000 square feet of saltwater and freshwater exhibits and displays. As part of our robust program offerings, we will be hosting numerous live interaction contests, including the Kid’s Aquarium Contest!


This event is sponsored by Tetra, the largest global manufacturer and acknowledged authority on ornamental fish food, and Marineland, a high-quality and innovative aquarium accessory company.


Put your kids’ creativity to work by teaching them about the responsibilities and rewards of pet care and aquatic environments by enrolling them in the Aquatic Experiences’ annual Kid’s Aquarium Contest. This year’s contest is open to children aged 5-16 and presents an ideal opportunity for each entrant to design an aquarium environment that reflects both. personality and imagination.


Each contestant will receive a ten-gallon freshwater aquarium kit with a filter, lighting, heater, thermometer and a net. Registrants will conceptualize their aquariums at home, adding decorations and live fish. During the expo, the aquariums will be on display.


This year’s judging will be broken up by age group and two categories: natural and creative. Ultimately, every child that enters is a winner as each entrant gets to bring their aquarium set up home after the show. Cultivate your children’s understanding of aquatic care and teach them the importance of a balanced ecosystem as applied to their own tank system in this not-to-be-missed event.

We can’t wait to see what your kids put together!
