Aquascaping Is Growing In Popularity!

Creating an aquascaping haven in your aquariums has countless benefits - and with aquarium plants becoming more popular than ever, it's a great time to make your home a little greener!

Why Aquascaping?

There are so many reasons that the beauty of choosing plants for the aquarium has taken off:

  • Aquarium plants are available in a broad range of sizes, textures, colours and hues, allowing you to customise your aquascapes to your tank and home.
  • Live plants are a great way to add a touch of gentle style, contrasting with brightly shaded aquarium rocks, coral and caves.
  • Tropical fish are lovely pets, and with heaters, aquarium filters and chic Nano tanks, they are now easier to care for than ever before.

Let's look at the benefits of aquascaping and why it's well worth trying out your green thumbs to transform your aquarium into an enchanting ecosystem that your fish will thrive in.

Benefits of Aquascaping

Part of the allure of using plants for the aquarium is that they bring exotic fish and bright fins to life!

However, there are also some fundamental advantages to using aquarium plants in your tanks:

  • In addition to aquarium filters, aquascapes with live plants enhance water quality. The plants use nutrients in fish waste and organic debris, thus improving the clarity and condition of the water.
  • Plants for the aquarium produce oxygen like any other plant, which stabilises the pH of the water and is beneficial for fish health.
  • Fish who have reeds and aquarium moss beds to play in and hide behind feel safe and relaxed, encouraging them to develop more vivid colours and live longer.
  • If you're hoping for the trickle of tiny funs, having plants encourages fish to spawn, with a secure place to hide away newly hatched fry as they grow.
