Help and advice on shopping for: CO2 and Planting Equipment

Supercharge your aquatic plant life

Aquatic gardening can be both challenging and deeply rewarding. Aquatic plants require some extra consideration as they require CO2 to perform photosynthesis. Our range of CO2 and planting equipment has everything you need for aquatic gardening success, including products from leading brands like JBL, TMC and Tropica.

What are CO2 and planting equipment products?

Live aquatic plants can bring a lot to an aquarium but they do need some care and attention to flourish. With CO2 and planting equipment you will have everything you need to tend to your aquarium garden, including ‘feeding’ your plants CO2 to allow them to perform photosynthesis, which changes CO2 into oxygen. Recently there has also been a growing trend in what is known as aquascaping. Aquascaping is the process of styling your aquarium plants, similar to how a professional gardener might, to create an impressive arrangement of flora.

Why should I buy CO2 and planting equipment products?

With CO2 and planting equipment you can ensure the health of your plants and their ability to photosynthesise, this will allow your plants to oxygenate the water in your tank. Oxygenating the water is key for the survival of any marine life and often requires hardware to achieve, if you can manage the CO2 and the number of plants carefully you can create plenty of oxygenated water for your entire tank.

What are the main types of CO2 and planting equipment products?

The CO2 and planting equipment range can be split into the following categories; aquarium probes, aquarium plant fertiliser, aquarium planting substrate, aquascaping, CO2 and iron test kits, CO2 and planting equipment pipework & fittings, CO2 bottles, CO2 pressure gauges, co2 sets, CO2 solenoid valves, diffusers, planting accessories. Aquarium probes, also known as aquarium electrodes, monitor the presence of CO2 within your aquarium water. Aquarium plant fertiliser is just like regular fertiliser however it is designed not to mix with the water, which can create a murky tank. Aquarium planting substrate is similar to soil for regular plants but formulated for aquatic use. Aquascaping includes all the tools needed to perform many modern aquascaping techniques. CO2 and iron test kits are simple chemical tests to determine the presence of CO2 or iron within your water. CO2 and planting equipment pipework & fittings has everything you need to set up your CO2 hardware and connect it with your tank. CO2 bottles are simply storage canisters of CO2. CO2 pressure gauges monitor and regulate the pressure within the CO2 bottles. CO2 sets contain all the hardware needed to add CO2 to your aquarium. CO2 solenoid valves are timed valves used to help you stop or start adding CO2 to your system. Diffusers spread CO2 throughout your aquarium to ensure they reach all of your plants. Finally planting accessories is made up of various tools and spare parts useful to aquatic gardeners.

What should I look for?
