Welcome to the Natural Aquariums web pages. I started these pages in the mid 90's to give people information on Natural Aquariums, the lovely and quiet lo to no tech planted tank.

I currently write a monthly column in Tropical Fish Hobbyist Magazine. You can read past columns in the "Planted Tank" links below and to the right.

Other pages included on site are a large guide to Aquarium Plants, and another on Fresh Water Invertebrates. I also have several Articles on site, and a store for Books, Aquarium Supplies and Gifts.

Check out the New Natural Aquariums Bulletin Board. There will still be new sections and a few changes comming to the new Bulletin Board, but it's ready for your messages now. So many more things to do with the new board!

I hope you enjoy your visit to my web site.

Thank you,
Rhonda Wilson

I'm excited to be able to tell you my new book co-authored with Terry Barber, The Simple Guide to Planted Aquariums, is now available at Amazon. It should be in your local stores too. Terry and I put a lot of information in this book. And lot's of photos. There's information on tank chemistry, equipment and CO2, types of plants and invertebrates and lot's more. I hope you get a chance to look at it, and I welcome your reviews on Amazon.
