The Aquatic Plant Society (TAPS) is dedicated to promoting the science and aesthetic of the planted aquarium. Our organization and members practice responsible, humane aquarium practices; respect the natural environment that supports our hobby; and encourage and educate the aquatics community to do the same.

TAPS was formed in 2012 by a small group of planted aquarium enthusiasts in New York City.

The TAPS facebook group serves as a central hub for daily activity where members share and learn with like-minded hobbyists regardless of age, background and expertise in the hobby. Our members strive to unravel the mysteries of high tech aquariums, fertilizers usage,  algae treatment and more in an effort provide an enriching experience for plant growers and aquascapers alike.
