Make sure your aquatic plants are in the best possible condition by using a fertiliser, alongside your CO2 systems and accessories.A dose of fertiliser contains a high dose of nutrients and provides a boost that aids health and growth.
Substrates that mimic the natural habitat of aquatic plants, such as tropical plant life can form the ideal base, such as the API First Layer Pure Laterite. This is used as a granular substrate under the regular one in your aquarium, and imitates the stream bed where such plants would normally grow.
Another substrate based fertiliser is the Aqua Medic Volcanit Gravel with Ferrolit Iron Fertiliser, which releases nutrients from its volcanic based iron rich gravel. Of course, fertiliser can be added via tablets or liquid directly into the tank, for superb results. We have a range of simple but highly effective products from expert manufacturers JBL, Seachem and Nutrafin.
