Topic: A Basic Aquatic Plant Tutorial
Chuck has been in the aquatic hobby throughout most of his life and has carried into the hobby philosophies of being surrounded by growing crops and animals as a farm boy. A lifelong working agronomist, he spent much of the time working professionally with farmers to better grow their crops especially in the US corn belt and around the world.
This discussion covers basics of growing plants in an aquatic environment and anecdotes around methods and species found in the aquarium hobby - a basic aquatic plant growth tutorial from the background of an agronomist.
Having maintained multiple tanks for the past 50 years and a serious fishroom for the last 20, Chuck is a member of several Midwestern Aquarium Societies including the EIAA and CAFE. He is also a member of the livebearer specialized groups, the ALA and CLS. He is editor and frequent contributor of plant articles to the Missouri Aquarium Society's newsletter, The Darter.
In the St Louis based Society he has attained the level of Grand Master Horticulturalist, having accumulated over 1400 points from over 130 plant submissions spanning 45 families. Over the 7 active years at MASI he has attained the Green Thumb, top yearly horticulturalist award, multiple times.
Since 1982 The Eastern Iowa Aquarium Association has worked to disseminate helpful information throughout the fish keeping community. EIAA is for everyone with an interest in fish keeping.
EIAA is for YOU!
