All you need to create and maintain your aquascape

What is aquascaping?

Aquascaping is all about creating an aesthetically pleasing display of hardscape including rocks, woods, substrates and, often plants or corals depending on the type of aquarium. Behind the scenic arrangement, a lot of thought should go into maintaining your scape.

Aquascaping involves the creating, maintaining and tidying of your freshwater planted or saltwater reef aquarium and hardscape. This can be a time consuming, and very detailed task, which takes dedication and focus. There’s a wide choice of tools to help you scape and trim, from planting tongs and curved scissors to substrate spatulas and spring scissors and meaning you can plant, trim and keep on top of the plants in your tank.

Why might I buy tools for aquascaping?

Aquascaping requires more than an aesthetic touch. Keeping the plants or corals healthy is a must for your underwater ecosystem to thrive. We recommend trimming plants, this ensures they remain healthy, don’t block out light from other plants, and no dead leaves will float about and ruin your beautiful oasis. Most corals can be trimmed too, but they are slower growing than plants and less likely to need it, although you may wish to trim and propagate them to help fill out your aquascape, a process termed fragging.

What are the main types of tools for aquascaping?
