Freshwater aquariums look amazing and attractive add to ambiance brilliantly, careful selection of plants and fish would make it even more attractive but it is not always easy to select the right type of plants and substrate for planted tank for maintenance purposes, if we lack the experience not only the buying but the maintenance would also be a challenge, so when a home aquarium what you must do is spend time reading about the type of plants that are best for freshwater and read all about the fish that you are planning to keep, you can do that online as there is an abundance of reliable online sources providing the information, so before you head out to buy aquatic plants make sure that you know all about them, because different plants would require different maintenance job.

Choosing substrate and doing it correctly is important for the aquatic plants, substrate is the soil or the bottom layer which covers the ground surface of the aquarium, it is important for the plants because the roots of the aquatic plants go into the substrate, it is pretty similar to how we use soil as the roots go deep into the surface and helps grow the plants, substrate performs the same function underwater and allows the roots to stay safe and grow properly.

Selecting the right type of chemical substrate is as important as selecting the right type of freshwater plants for your aquarium, there are a number of top choices and these differ according to your requirement, the most fruitful tip I got from an expert was not to overcomplicate things when trying to add colorful plants and always check the type of plant and its properties when selecting for a freshwater aquarium, and buy chemical substrate which complements the type of plant that you have bought.
