Plants play a key role in the aquarium, offering shade and shelter so that fish feel secure, and providing food for herbivorous species. Thriving freshwater plants will restrict algal growth and help to improve the water conditions by absorbing nitrate and giving off oxygen. With hundreds of different colors, leaf shapes, and sizes available, there is endless scope for you to exercise your creative powers in the design of your aquarium.
