Help and advice on shopping for: Aquarium Foreground Plants
The art of aquascaping
Foreground plants will draw attention to your planted aquarium. Having live plants in your fish tank is good for their health because they provide oxygen, essential nutrients, and shelter. We have a variety of foreground plants from leading manufacturer Tropica.
What are foreground plants?
Foreground plants are aquatic plants that are placed near the midground area at the base of a hardscape layout.
Why should I buy foreground plants?
Foreground plants come in a variety of colours, ranging from vibrant reds to bright greens, and can be used in any aquascape. Attaching foreground plants to rocks and wood will cause them to grow and spread throughout the tank.
What are the main types of foreground plants?
Every plant is unique and has unique requirements. Some necessitate a great deal of light, fertiliser, and CO2. Others will thrive with little or no assistance. All of our Tropica plants are labelled with patented symbols that indicate the plant's difficulty. This allows you to quickly review and select the best plants for your aquarium.
What features should you look out for?
We recommend doing some research on how to arrange your plants and which ones are best for the foreground before you start planting. Do you want a tank that is completely green and lushly planted? Or do you simply want to add a few plants to your décor? Choosing plants is influenced by how you want the finished product to look.Staurogyne repens is a fresh green, compact and hardy plant for the foreground of the aquarium. It has a low and bushy stature and small green leaves.
What accessories might I need?
Because carpet plants require adequate lighting to thrive, good flow will help to deliver CO2 to the bottom areas of your aquarium where it can be absorbed by your carpet plants. To help your aquascape come to life, invest in CO2 kits and light tubes that are specifically designed for plant growth.
