AquaInfo is part of Hobbykwekers.nl and actually provides the English version of the same content. The websites combined have more than 800.000 visitors per year and over 2.000.000 page views. In the Netherlands it is one of the largest aquarium databases.
Because of the vast numbers of visitors and pageviews we can't host the website on a cheap shared hosting account. The websites are hosted on our own VPS server to provide you a fast and reliable website. In order to pay for this website we have sponsers on our Dutch website and for now we are showing Google adsense advertisements on the English version.
