Aquarium plants - variety for your aquarium

Aquarium plants are essential for a healthy and aesthetically pleasing aquarium. They not only help to improve the water quality, but also provide protection and hiding places for fish and shrimps. At Rendo-Shrimp you will find a wide selection of aquarium plants that will transform your aquarium into a green oasis.

The variety of aquarium plants

The world of aquarium plants is incredibly diverse and offers the right plant for every taste and every aquarium. A distinction is made between foreground, middle ground and background plants, depending on their natural growth and size.

Foreground plants are small-growing and are ideal for covering the bottom of the aquarium. Examples of this are dwarf grass (Eleocharis parvula) and dwarf spear leaf (Anubias nana).

Mid-ground plants have a medium growth height and fill the middle section of the aquarium. Popular mid-ground plants include Java fern (Microsorum pteropus) and water friend (Hygrophila).

Background plants grow tall and form the background of the aquarium. They create an impressive backdrop and at the same time provide protection for the aquarium inhabitants. Examples of background plants are vallisneria (Vallisneria) and waterweed (Egeria densa).

This variety allows you to design your aquarium according to your own ideas and create a natural, lively underwater world.

Advantages of aquarium plants

Aquarium plants offer numerous advantages that go far beyond visual design. Here are some of the most important benefits:

Improving water quality

Aquarium plants play a crucial role in maintaining water quality. They absorb nitrates and phosphates produced by fish droppings and food waste, helping to keep the water clean and healthy. Plants also contribute to oxygen production, which is particularly important for the respiration of fish and shrimp.

Promoting the natural behavior of fish and shrimp

Plants provide hiding places and protection, which promotes the natural behavior of the aquarium inhabitants. Fish and shrimp feel safer and exhibit more natural behavior when they are in a well-planted environment.

Aesthetic benefits and design options

Aquarium plants allow you to design your aquarium creatively. You can combine different colors, shapes and textures to create an appealing and varied underwater landscape. A well-planted aquarium has a calming and attractive effect, both for the inhabitants and for onlookers.

Care of aquarium plants

Caring for aquarium plants is relatively straightforward, but requires some basic knowledge and the right equipment. Here are the most important aspects of plant care:

Optimal light conditions

Light is one of the most important factors for the growth of plants in the aquarium. Different plant species have different light requirements. While some plants can manage with little light, others require strong lighting. It is important to adjust the light intensity and duration to the needs of the plants.

Nutrient supply and fertilization

Aquarium plants require a balanced supply of nutrients in order to grow healthily. In addition to the nutrients dissolved in the water, special plant fertilizers should be used to supply the plants with all the necessary minerals and trace elements. This can be in the form of liquid fertilizer or fertilizer tablets.

CO2 supply and its importance

Carbon dioxide (CO2) is an essential nutrient for plant growth. In heavily planted aquariums, an additional supply of CO2 may be necessary to ensure optimum growth. CO2 systems are available in various designs and can help to improve the growth and health of plants.

Popular aquarium plants for beginners

Easy-care aquarium plants that are robust and thrive in less than ideal conditions are particularly suitable for beginners. Here are some popular plant species that are ideal for beginners:

Java fern (Microsorum pteropus)
Java fern is one of the easiest plants to care for. It requires very little light and grows well even in aquariums without an additional CO2 supply. Java fern can be tied to stones or roots and offers an attractive appearance.

Anubias (Anubias barteri var. nana)
Anubias are very robust plants that can be placed in both the foreground and middle ground of an aquarium. They are undemanding and grow slowly, which makes them ideal for beginners. Anubias can be tied to decorative objects or anchored in the substrate.

Water calyx (Cryptocoryne wendtii)
The water calyx is also a very easy plant to care for. It copes well with low light and does not require a CO2 supply. This plant is ideal for the middle ground and forms dense stands that provide protection for fish and shrimps.

These easy-care plants help beginners to create an attractive and healthy aquarium without having to put in a lot of effort.
