A freshwater planted aquarium is a unique and natural aquatic ecosystem you can create for your home. Planted or natural aquariums contain specially selected aquatic plants and fish to closely replicate beautiful underwater environments found in nature. Gardeners, teachers, and experienced aquarists alike are discovering the many benefits of these beautiful aquariums.
Planted Aquariums are a living, breathing ecosystem and piece of living art which not only provide a "zen-like" feel to any space, they provide hours of enjoyment for the Aquascaper. Choosing new plants, performing the routine plant trimming, tank rescaping or adding new fish makes the hobby quite interesting and varied.
Because of the complementary relationship between fish and plants, an established natural aquarium is usually easier to maintain than other aquarium setups. Fish provide carbon dioxide and nutrients for healthy plant growth. In turn, aquatic plants provide supplementary biological filtration and oxygen to create a clean, healthy environment for fish.
Whether you're new to planted aquariums or an experienced hobbyist, you're sure to enjoy the graceful beauty of this unique aquarium.
