If you are aquarium hobbyist you might already know what planted aquarium is. Planted aquarium is usually a freshwater aquarium with aquatic plants rooted in the substrate and grown in the aquarium. A well established planted aquarium is a marvelous piece of home decor. Any freshwater aquarium can be converted into planted aquarium. As far as aquatic plants are concerned they fall into one of four common class types: algae, floating plants, submerged plants and emerged plants. Keeping aquarium does not need pro experience level but need to have some knowledge about plant types and their difficulty level. Some aquatic plants require high tech planted aquarium with canister filters, proper lighting, fertilizers and high CO2 requirements while other aquatic plants require low light, low fertilizers and low CO2 they thus fall into low difficulty level plants. The beauty of planted aquariums lies in the placement of plants types, rocks, wood and other decors which is also called Aquascaping. The foundation of beautiful planted aquarium also lies in the substrate. Some experts use some sort of powders of fertilizers or additives for cultivating useful bacteria and also for boasting plant growth. I however started with a nano aquarium of 10 gallon and used simple Amano ADA Aqua Soil Amazonia and it worked for me so far.
