Beginner's Guide to Aquascaping
Few things are more beautiful in a home than a well put together fish tank. Come check several simple tips and techniques for making your fish tank a true joy in your home and a topic for discussion.
You can have a plant in as little as five gallons but for the purpose of aquascaping I recommend ten gallon or higher. This way you have room for stones, wood and multiple plants. If you have the option to choose a wider tank over a taller tank both your fish and plants will benefit, but I wouldn't stress on this as you won't come across options often.
Most tanks come with a basic lighting set but as you start to get into larger tanks these may not be suitable for your needs. I recommend purchasing your lighting separate. Most lights for fish tanks come with latches so you shouldn't have to struggle to mount it. In a pinch, I've used 100 watt fluorescent bulbs in the car garage light setups. (Those are the domed lamp fixtures with clamps.) The plants can grow with normal fluorescent bulbs but they also encourage brown algae so it's not recommended to use them long term.
Substrate is important in a healthy planted tank. I prefer clay based substrates such as flourite. There is also another great substrate known as Eco-Complete which uses a special mixture for vitamins and already has the good bacteria you need in your tank! For beginners to aquariums the Eco-complete option would probably be best for you. There is less work involved with it and it's packed with the basic things your tank will need. Currently my fifty gallon fish tank uses Flourite and Tahiti Moon sand.
When you know that you are going to have a planted tank consider what fish you have. Some fish will nibble those plants you just bought for a treat. Others are notorious diggers and will tear up your carefully arranged aquascape. If you are unsure, ask your fish store about the fish you are buying.
Choosing your plants
Choosing what plants you want to have in your fish tank is very important. Some plants need little to no care to grow while others require special lighting or carbon dioxide equipment in order to flourish. Let's say you buy a ten gallon tank and use the hood/lighting system that came with it. The light is sufficient to grow any plants that fall into the low-medium spectrum. Now if you take that ten gallon and use a custom light set over it, like a grow light, you could grow any water plant that doesn't require additional carbon dioxide just fine. Low-medium light plants will grow in just about any lighting system. The internet is full of information regarding specific plants that are good for beginners and have information on individual plant needs.
Here is what I go by for light levels
Setting up your tank
You finally have your tank set up and bags of plants ready to go in? Great! Here are some simple strategies to make a great tank.
Short to Tall
In this strategy you want to keep your shorter plants towards the front of the tank and your taller plants in the back. I also like to use tall plants at either end of the tank because it builds the illusion that you are truly looking into a portion of a bigger world. Natural wood, like driftwood, can be set between the plants. It wouldn't be a bad idea to attach a plant to your driftwood either, as this happens all the time in nature. If you bought stones as well go ahead and put them in. Spread them out or layer them into a cave.
If you have a particularly large plant called a 'Mother Plant' by hobbyists you may want to place it in the center then spread your other plants out towards the end. One again I recommend using some tall plants for the ends. If you have several long stones you may be able to layer them near the ends to hide the fact that your water world ends abruptly but using stones takes a bit of space and in most cases is impracticable. If you don't have a mother plant or want to use it elsewhere, consider a lovely piece of driftwood in the middle.
Staggering your tall and short plants has several benefits. First off it will provide a very natural environment for your fish. Your fish will not be able to see you from every part of the tank (and vice versa) but as they swim around you will usually see even the shyer species. I used this technique with my Gold Seam Pleco because he refused to come out from under a rock. After placing some tall plants in front with the short ones he was out in no time. To stagger your plants, put clumps of tall plants in front as well as in back. Try to keep the center of your tank view-able with short plants and stagger towards the ends. Drift wood placed just off center is a good idea as well. If you place large stones in there too, try not to make a cave system as the fish will already have a great deal of cover from the plants.
Background or no background?
Many people like backgrounds of colorful plants, fish or even dinosaurs! This takes away from the effect of realism that aquascaping tries to achieve though. If you want to have a background to hide those unsightly wires, pick black. Not only do your plants and fish stand out, but the black also provides an illusion of depth.
So what plants are good?
Any fresh water plant can be a good addition but we'll discuss some favorites I have come across.
Tiger Lilly: Tiger Lilly usually comes as just the bulb. You let it sink to the bottom of your tank and grow. The plant has vibrant pink leaves and is very pretty. In low light it will grow tall, reaching for the light. In medium-high light it will stay small and send up a tendril for a blossom. The blossom only occurs if it can reach the surface. So don't expect blooming flowers unless you have a smaller tank. I have used these repeatedly as they are some of my favorite bulbs to grow and very easy to find. (I buy the dry package of them from Walmart and just dump them in the tank with out further ado.)
Anubias: Anubias is actually a genus instead of a single plant species. The whole spectrum of Anubias tends to be beginner friendly and offers a wide variety of color and shape. Anubias Nana is a great foreground plant while Anubias Congensis is perfect for the middle or back of the tank.
Ozelot Sword: These are another easy plant to grow and have a marbled appearance. There are spots all over the leaves. It is a hardy plant and very pretty as it grows. It does like more light though so try to have at least 4-5 watts per gallon for optimal growth. If you don't mind it growing slowly you can try less light.
Moss Balls: These cute little green balls look almost like mossy stones. Drop them in and watch them get bigger over time. They also lend some nice curves to make your tank varied. They require no maintenance and over time they will multiply. So buy a couple if you want and see how fast they grow in your tank before getting others.
Wisteria: There are actually two different styles you can find in Fish stores. These where the first plants I invested in for a 10 gallon tank with the original hood and lighting. They grew super fast and in no time I was taking scissors to them in order to trim them back! They are a pretty plant and very easy. Due to their size and rapid growth, I recommend using them for the back or sides of the tank. Their dense foliage will cover the glass enough that you can't see unsightly wires.
Crystalwort (Riccia fluitans): No aquascape article would be complete with out mentioning this prolific grower. It is a very popular plant due to its fast growing nature and unusual shape. Riccia is very popular among serious aquascapers. If you decide to get an advanced set up with CO2 added to the tank, you will find little air bubbles attached to the leaves as well. This is a small plant and will float to the surface if not tied down. Try securing it to driftwood with some fishing line and watch it cover the drift wood and substrate around it.
There are hundreds if not thousand of other plants available on the market. Take your time and look around. You can get loads of useful information on sites such as The Planted Tank or Aquascaping World. In the end, make your tank the way you want it. Don't be afraid to be creative and most all; have fun!
