Plants – the key to maintaining a biological balance
Plants provide much more than just decoration. They act as an ecological counterbalance to the animals. Only with plants does an aquarium become a living eco-system. Because of feeding, nutrients are constantly being introduced into the aquarium – and it is the plants that remove them again afterwards. As such, plants are the crucial key to a perfectly functioning aquarium.
And plants can do even more than this:
- They produce vital oxygen
- They provide a safe hiding place and reduce stress
- They remove contaminants from the water, repel germs
- They remove algae nutrients from the water
