Planted Aquarium

With the availability of Tropica's complete range of plants and plant care products in combination with our specially crafted selections you can now make all your aquascaping wishes come true!

Creating your very own aquascape is an inspiring and enriching experience that can be easily accomplished with the right tools and high quality content which are available for you on this page. Select your aquarium and start your aquascape by adding your rocks and wood first (if needed), followed by adding your substrate and soil and finally planting using your tools before filling up the water very slowly. Run your filter and CO2 system and install a suitable light (1 watts per liter is the general rule of thumb). Your plants will only require CO2 when the lights are on, connecting both to an auto-timer for 7 hours per day is your ideal solution (a timer can be requested from our team before delivery).

Depending on the complexity of your scape, maintenance can range from 1 to 2 hours per week and you can hire our professional team to create the design of your dreams and maintain your aquarium by sending an enquiry through our contact page (click here). Here is our chosen Planted aquarium collection which together will allow you to begin your new experience:

Tropica plants are the best choice for our Stendker Discus fish due to their higher durability in higher temperatures and their total safety from transferring unwanted pathogens.

To keep your plants healthy use Tropica's appropriate fertiliser (suggested in the collection above) and Nutrition Capsules for larger fast growing plants . Adding algae eaters such as Oto catfish and Amano shrimps helps keep your algae under control, both species as well as many more plant-friendly fish and inverts are always available in our live fish section and you can contact us for special inquiries.
