Easy Eksempel

The easy plants

  • These plants can thrive and grow well in low-light aquariums.
  • CO2 supply is recommended because the CO2 supply, despite the low light, ensures the growth of the plants.
  • The time expenditure per week is less than ½ hour because the plants grow slowly.
  • Bottom substrate at the beginning and liquid fertiliser for weekly use.
Medium Eksempel

Plants that require a little extra

  • The plants require at least ½ watt per litre to thrive.
  • CO2 supply is recommended to help plants grow with good colour and density.
  • Weekly maintenance times of ½-1 hour will be required depending on the growth and development of the plants.
  • Bottom substrate and liquid fertilisers are required. Special fertiliser is recommended.

The most demanding plants

  • Continuous CO2 supply of 15-25 mg per litre is required.
