Aquascaping and Aquatic Plants

Creating and managing an aquatic environment inside an aquarium is referred to as Aquascaping. It is a simple and effective process to add serenity to the tank. To create an aquascape, most of the aquarium hobbyist gather and combine all the elements that could be found in natural water such as ponds, streams, lakes and rivers. By setting up gravel, stones, rocks, driftwood and attaching some aquatic plants to these elements a natural environment could be created inside the aquarium. And it is often re-arranged to change the layout of the tank.

Plants filters the aquarium water by absorbing all the excess nutrients (nitrogen compounds) which is harmful for the fish. They also provide food and shelter to various inhabitant of the tank such as pregnant fish and newborns referred to as fry. There are two types of aquatic plants used in the aquarium hobby. Submerged plants are rooted in the bottom sediments and they grow under water. And floater plants have roots dangling in the aquarium water which soaks all the nutrients and their leaves offers a safe place for the fish to spawn.
