Plant Care & Equipment

Aquarium plants offer an attractive, dynamic element to your fish tank. They change with their growth and reproduction, giving your aquarium a natural look with added benefits to your aquatic environment

Aquatic water plants act as a filter by absorbing metals, ammonium, nitrate, and phosphate from the water. During daylight hours, plants photosynthesize, taking in carbon dioxide (CO2) and giving off oxygen and the plants help to keep the balance.

A planted tank provides fish with shelter and hiding places which helps reduce stress levels for shy fish and shrimp. Aquatic environments that contain a large population of lush healthy plants will result in less maintenance, healthier fish and superior water quality.

That is why it is important to care for plant life in your aquarium so we offer a range of helpful treatments, supplements and accessories to maintain a healthy tank environment.
