When we started keeping tropical – we had a major disaster that destroys the whole tank. It was particularly horrible situation that we could have avoided but I did not regarded as “our fault”. We had spent a long weekend and yes, you guessed it, the thermostat on the tank water heater broke, the water temperature soared – aquarium has followed the extinction, my family and I were in tears upon our return.
I was so overwhelmed by the experience that for some time we kept only in our aquarium plants that we did not have the heart to start again. Slowly, over time, we made a wonderful how well planted tank can be and how exotic plants may make it all look aquarium, a of huge reservoir adds visual impact. And of course, when you add fish, plants play an important role in the life aquarium that they add oxygen to water and help them absorb nitrates which are toxic to fish.
The sun is the most important factor in the life of a plant, and in an aquarium, the lighting is just as central to preserving the health and beauty of plants. Wayne Vandre, horticulture specialist, comments that the light is the major source of energy used by plants in photosynthesis. But light is not just a simple, well-defined entity. The response of plants is influenced by light quality, intensity and duration. Experiments show that the maximum growth of most plants is a cool white fluorescent light. It is important to realize that skimping on the quality of light will affect the quality of growth of plants that you get and thus the overall quality of life tank.
