Live plants can benefit your fish tank by harbouring bacteria that can break down waste, but at the same time, these living plants can also be the root of the problem, decaying and polluting the aquarium. This in turn can increase the risk of algae, requiring treatments and additives to resolve the issue. So, while plastic plants might only benefit your fish tank visually, they won't run the risk of pollution, so if you're looking for a low maintenance aquarium, artificial plants might just be the thing for you. From tropical flowers to grass balls, they are easy to maintain, simply wash in aquarium water, no feeding or pruning required.
A great plant is the Kamashi Grass Matting, in clover, coarse and fern styles. A unique product, it can be used with substrate to create a really stunning look. Whatever size aquarium you have, you will find the perfect plants here at Swell UK. With our variety of colours, sizes and textures you can fill your tank with an array of life like foliage.
