Why is healthy plant growth so important for the aquarium?

Aquarium plants are not only decorative, offering aquarium inhabitants natural hiding places and shelter but they also influence the biochemical processes positively, thus ensuring an optimum biological balance in the aquarium.


Create the vital oxygen for fish and microorganisms during the daytime.
Help to biologically clean the water, breaking down pollutants.
Inhibit the growth of algae, out competing it for nutrients.
For these reasons, it is vitally important that you give your plants a good substrate to grow in.
