Plant selection is also very important, all too often pet shops sell non-aquatic plants as aquatic plants, this is a recipe for disaster as they will not last long submersed underwater in your aquarium. We at the fish room do not carry not aquatic plants, to give you the best possible chance of having your plants survive.
Once you have decided where your new aquarium is going to sit, you need to decide if you are going to go with tropical fish or cold water. As a general rule, tropical is easier to look after than cold water and gives far greater options for wet pet selection.
For many of us we think having a stunning planted aquarium is going to be a daunting and expensive exercise, well this is not the case at all. It is entirely possible to set up a gorgeous planted aquarium on one simple idea.
