Plants and Aquascaping

Aquascaping is the arranging of wood, rocks, substrate (ground), and plants in an aquarium to create a desired effect. An addition of just a few plants in any aquarium improves the balance of the aquatic environment and lowers the stress within the fish community. Happy plants happy fish. 

We offer very nice aquascaping rocks and driftwood, but only in small sizes that can be placed with fish orders - these products are very expensive to ship separately  and if large pieces are desired we recommend your local INDEPENDENT aquarium store.

A true planted aquarium uses aquascaping as the center piece of the fish tank as opposed to the fish. A planted aquarium is a hobby within a hobby and requires a good balance of carbon dioxide, algae control, and photosynthesis but the end product is quite rewarding.

There are three primary designs for the planted aquarium: the lush Dutch model, the Zen rock and moss Japanese model pioneered by Takashi Amano (the same shrimp guy), and the jungle model popular in the USA. AquariumFishSale.com offers the plants, wood, and rocks required to start this type of set-up. A good local INDEPENDENT aquarium store will have the proper lighting and, if required, carbon dioxide system. 

Our product line for aquarium for aquarium plants is big, but our line of terrarium and paludarium products are limited - but we have a few very nice items!
