Aquascaping Techniques

In recent years, Aquascaping has become quite popular.  Underwater gardening, using a variety of plants, creates a natural, aesthetically-pleasing look for your home or office.  The setup involves using a variety of natural elements including aquatic plants, stones, rocks and driftwood.  These days, aquariums are so much more than just a collection of fish.  Here are some tips on setting up yours:

1. Use a variety of plant types
2. Don’t overfill the tank
3. Keep it simple – but avoid perfect symmetry (keep it natural)
4. Choose colours that work well together
5. Choose natural looking gravel that will blend well with the environment
6. Select plants that will thrive in the type of lighting available in its environment
