Freshwater Planted Aquariums

Freshwater Planted Aquariums

Freshwater planted aquariums are carefully designed and maintained to grow lush freshwater aquarium plants. The focus in most planted aquariums is the aquascape. Meticulously arranged aquarium rocks, driftwood and gravel rest on a fertile substrate interspersed with a colorful mix of aquarium plant species. To grow freshwater aquarium plants successfully in your underwater garden, you’ll need a few key supplies. A freshwater tank, aquarium filter, lighting and an aquarium CO2 system are recommended. You’ll also need an appropriate aquarium substrate, fertilizer, water conditioner and aquarium test kit. If you would like product recommendations or have questions about aquarium set up, please don’t hesitate to contact us. We’re happy to help!

Freshwater Planted Aquarium Lighting

Freshwater Aquarium Lighting
Lighting is one of the most important factors to consider when setting up a freshwater planted tank. Consider the lighting needs of each plant species you intend to keep to ensure they are compatible before selecting your light fixture. Low, medium or high lighting can mean the difference between plants that thrive or merely survive. Shop Freshwater Aquarium Lighting
