PLANTED AQUARIUM FERTILIZERS
In addition to carbon and light, aquarium plants need additional nutrients. There is categorically a distinction between macro and micronutrients. The latter is composed of iron along with other trace elements such as manganese, zinc, copper, boron, molybdenum, cobalt and nickel. These elements are only needed in small quantities by aquatic plants. In principle, an iron fertilizer may also be necessary. So-called macronutrients are added in considerably higher amounts, including mainly nitrogen (N), potassium (P), and phosphorus (K). A complete supply of all nutrients is important for good and healthy growth of aquarium plants. For more information on this topic, we recommend looking at the article: How to fertilize an aquarium from our blog.
Different species of aquarium plants absorb their food to varying degrees through their leaves and stems, as well as through the root system. Especially plants that feed intensively on roots like Vallisnerias, Cryptocorynes, and Echinodorus benefit greatly from a nutrient-rich substrate or from fertilizing the substrate. The balls o fertilizer capsules They are commonly used in the aquarium, specifically placed in the soil substrate, close to the roots of aquatic plants that need it. Aquarium plants that mainly take up nutrients through their leaves can complement well with allowance liquid. For this purpose, we offer a wide range of liquid fertilizers such as iron, micronutrient and NPK fertilizers from well-known brands such as Seachem, Aquavitro, Azoo y Qualdrop at our shop. Incidentally, an optimal supply of nutrients involves the addition of nutrients through liquid fertilizers, as well as a nutritive substrate.
In addition, when it comes to water hardness, parameters such as calcium and magnesium can be adjusted in a special proportion to optimize the growth of your aquarium plants. Both elements are important, macronutrients too.
In order to be able to safely determine the various nutrient contents, the corresponding water tests are required. All the important water tests for the proper growth of aquarium plants, such as iron, nitrate, phosphate, potassium, carbonate hardness and many more, can be found in our store in the section "Travel Pass". But even with the naked eye, an experienced hobbyist can recognize whether aquatic plants are lacking in certain nutrients. For this, we recommend our article on: Symptoms of nutrient deficiencies in aquarium plants.
The term Aquascaping o Aquatic Landscaping refers to an original assembly of aquariums, in which an underwater landscape is designed. Various types of natural materials are used.

But also sand levelers and blades (scrapers) are useful tools in the maintenance of an aquarium.
Carbon is one of the most important nutrients for aquatic plants. This element is generally consumed by plants in the form of CO2. Although this gas is also produced by the inhabitants of the aquarium, the amount will not be sufficient if there are a greater number of fast-growing or demanding plants. It is advisable to support a densely planted natural aquarium with additional carbon fertilization through a CO2 system. Our store offers a wide selection of equipment CO2 for refillable CO2 equipment.
