According to Colossal, aquascaping is an incredibly competitive art. I didn't even know aquascaping existed, but I have to admit that some of these winners from the Planted Aquarium Design Contest 2013 are beautiful and—when you see fish flying over mountains, deserts, and forests—they feel quite surreal.

They are made with organic plants manicured into those shapes.
