A business partnership has opened up Scotland’s first shop dedicated to an underwater art form.
Rowan Woods and James Richmond opened the doors of The Aquatic Gardens, which specialises in aquascaping, on Castle Street, Tayport.
The art form started in Japan and has become increasingly popular across the UK.
Mr Woods said he turned to the hobby – which is essentially underwater gardening – as a means of coping with depression and seasonal affective disorder following the death of his original business partner and best friend, Connor Craig, in March 2016.
The Duncan of Jordanstone College of Art and Design student died aged 23.
Aquascaping is the craft of arranging aquatic plants, rocks, stones, cave work and driftwood in an aquarium, giving fish a natural environment to thrive in.
The Aquatic Gardens in Tayport is the first shop of its kind in Scotland and sells all the plants, tools and supplies needed for those who are involved in the practice, or would like to get started.
The shop officially opened on Saturday, with the community invited along to view a 6ft aquascape exhibition, depicting the Tentsmuir coastline, which was specially made to mark the occasion.
