We are updating the website. Coming back soon!

Looking at most popular sites online one thing is clear. Visitors want easily accessible and reliable information. Some basic topics are covered multiple times in forums resulting in more or less comprehensive and structured coverage of the topic. Opinions are often stated as facts with no conclusive proof. Other topics are indeed controversial and it seems everybody has a different, often contradicting opinion with no concrete outcome. Everyone’s experience differs and yet the tendency is to state random observations as proof for advice that should be followed as law. With the proper scientific background and experience in this hobby, this site will become your source for reliable information. It will provide well-structured and presented information as well as scientifically designed and conducted experiments for aquarium keepers of all experience levels. Commonly asked questions will be covered by easy to understand articles, starting with basic knowledge and building up to expert level coverage. This type of structure offers both quick answers and knowledge. More controversial topics necessitate a sound experimental framework where they can be answered. Of course just as there are more ways to tie a knot, so are to grow successful plants. IntuitiveAqua.net will document and repeat some ways so you can increase your chances of success. The main focus, in the beginning will be on aquatic plants. Nevertheless, other topics that interest freshwater aquarists will be detailed, such as water parameters, equipment reviews and general guides. Therefore subscribe to our newsletter at the top and visit frequently for new updates.

The author

My scientific background as a biologist blends well with my experience of keeping planted aquariums. During my university studies I have studied topics such as microbiology, plant science and ecology as well study design and data analysis. I have been playing with aquariums since 7 and am thankful for all the information and help provided to me. Recently I have seen a growing interest and influx of new hobbyists. Rather than rewriting the same thing in various forums, I have decided to provide easily accessible and structured information as a website. I also wanted to document some experiments to clarify certain ‘hot topics’. So join me as we reveal the planted aquarium.
