Planted Aquarium

Planted Aquarium

A planted aquarium is a great way to create a natural ecosystem in your fish tank and when cared for correctly will mimic the beautiful natural environment for fish. A planted aquarium is a balance of live plants and fish where both contribute something beneficial to the other. When this balance is just right, a planted aquarium can be easy to manage and maintain.

If you already have a planted aquarium, or are looking to create one, using a planted aquarium substrate is a good place to start. Ista Water Plant Soil is a planted aquarium substrate made from natural elements that helps plants to take root and grow successfully. Other natural products for a planted aquarium include Mopani Wood, available in medium or large sizes, which helps to naturally balance the pH in your planted aquarium.

For a planted aquarium to really thrive, one of the most important things to consider is CO2. CO2 helps with plant growth, and when plants grow well, a planted aquarium thrives. CO2 canister systems like the Ista Mini regulate CO2 levels in your tank. If the CO2 levels need a boost, then you can use Ista CO2 tablets. The tablets can easily be dropped into your planted aquarium to improve the CO2 levels and replenish any sad-looking plants. 

At Finest Filters, we stock a huge range of planted aquarium accessories, including cultivation mesh, aquascaping scissors, and spray bar sets. We also have more information on aquascaping for anyone wishing to get started with a planted aquarium.
