Live plants not only look great in an aquarium, but they also provide other benefits. They help with additional filtration, provide the water with oxygen, absorb some of the carbon dioxide created by fish, remove nitrates, combat algae growth and will provide cover for your fish. This will also help maintain good water quality and keep your fish happy and healthy.

Here are some of the basic thing’s aquarium plants need to survive and grow. Aquarium plants will need certain nutrients and conditions in order to live. If you want to grow a planted aquarium you will need to know what those things are and do your best to achieve them in your own aquarium.

There are four main things that the plants need in order to live. Water, light, food, and carbon dioxide.

Plants require water of good parameters, but it is more important for aquatic plants as they live within it. Some plants can grow out above the surface of the water as long as their roots are submerged, but most aquatic plants must be completely submerged in water.

Aquatic plants need certain nutrients (food). Plants obtain the main three nutrients from fish waste as it decomposes in your tank water. The most important nutrients are nitrogen, phosphorus, and potassium these can also be added with supplements such as Seachem flourish and a good quality substrate such as Oase ScraperLine soil. The other trace elements your plants need can be found in tap water, perform regular water changes to make sure your plants always have enough micronutrients.

Plants grow and get nutrients through the process of photosynthesis which uses light as its main source of energy. In order to grow properly, aquatic plants need good lighting which mimics natural daylight. Some plants will require more or less light than others.In order to make sure your plants have enough light, use a good quality LED aquarium light such as Fluval LED plant spectrum. A lot of these now have apps where you can set timers up to help control the amount of light.

Through photosynthesis, live plants convert CO2 into oxygen. There is already carbon dioxide in your aquarium because it is a byproduct of respiration and gas exchange at the surface of the water in your tank. You can increase the amount of CO2 in your tank using a CO2 injector such as Fluval CO2 kitand by decreasing the aeration from your tank filter.
