  • ✔ BEAUTIFUL, BRIGHTLY COLORED AQUATIC PLANT --- Native to South-East Asia, the vibrant green giant hygrophila is commonly used in aquascaping for many reasons besides its natural beauty. The reasonable hardiness and stem reaching to 1.5-3 inches wide and 10-15 inches high make this live aquarium tropical plant perfect for freshwater aquariums especially large tanks.
  • ✔ IMPROVES WATER COLOR AND QUALITY --- All plants have the ability to convert carbon dioxide into much needed oxygen that fish and aquatic life require in order to survive. Plants also absorb CO2 and nitrates produced by fish waste creating a natural ecosystem and healthy habitat for your fish. The best thing about hygrophila is that it grows fast and helps keep aquarium water clean by removing nitrates, making it an ideal choice for the new aquarists.
  • ✔ EXCITING, INTERACTIVE ENVIRONMENT FOR AQUATIC PETS --- This undemanding and extremely attractive giant hygrophila covers a large surface in just a short span of time creating a stunning, dynamic underwater environment. It is completely safe for betta, shrimp, mollies, guppies and other freshwater fish to play in.
  • ✔ EASY TO GROW WITH MINIMAL MAINTENANCE --- Once you receive your seeds, simply spread the seeds into the moist soil along the bottom of your freshwater aquarium. The plant requires moderate sunlight and thrives in 74°- 82°F water temperature having an alkalinity of 3 to 8 dKH and a pH of 6.5-7.5. Since this carpet plant grows quickly, it is recommended to trim it regularly and give it a high amount of sunlight to thrive.
  • ✔ NATURALLY SPREADS ACROSS YOUR TANK --- When they are young, they look like the most popular carpeting plants, and when they completely grow, they form dense, lush stem plants over the floor of your tank. The regular trimming will keep these plants flat onto the ground creating a lush and gorgeous aquascape for you and your visitors. To promote even quicker growth, simply remove a few leaves from the bottom 1" to 2" of the stem, and new root growth will form from the last node on the stem.

Top Five Ways to Anchor Your Plastic Aquarium Plants

Some aquarium owners excel at keeping fish happy and healthy, but do not have a green thumb when it comes to aquarium plants. Plastic aquarium plants are a viable alternative to natural.

Anchor Plastic Aquarium Plants - The Provided Plastic Cup

Most plastic aquarium plants are built with the stems or leaves connected to a plastic cup at the base. This should be filled with the aquarium gravel and dug into it at the bottom of the fish tank. With some fish that enjoy moving the gravel or scavenging for food at the base of the plants, this cup can become dislodged relatively easily.

Anchor Plastic Aquarium Plants - Lead Plant Strips

Lead is a very heavy and flexible metal. It has been used for years to anchor natural aquarium plants to the floor of fish tanks. Pet stores and aquarium hobbyist locations should sell packs of these thin lead strips. Simply bend them around the bottom of the plastic aquarium plant and drop them into the tank.

Anchor Plastic Aquarium Plants - Fishing Weights

Like the strips mentioned above, fishing weights are most often made of lead. These can be purchased in any sporting good store and are usually tear-drop shaped with a hole on the top for the line. They can be tied to the base of plastic aquarium plants using fishing line or narrow plastic cored. Thread or wire is not suitable as it will degrade in the aquarium.

Anchor Plastic Aquarium Plants - Tying to Rocks Method

Another way to anchor your plastic aquarium aquarium plants is to tie them directly to rocks or ornaments already displayed in the fish tank. Using strong fishing line, simply wrap the ends of the plant stems to the rock itself. This method is often visible in the tank, and mostly recommended with very bushy plastic aquarium plants.

Anchor Plastic Aquarium Plants - Create a Weight

The final method of anchoring your plastic aquarium plants in the tank is to create a rock-based weight of your own. Use aquarium grade silicone sealant to build a blob around the base of the aquarium plants. Then, roll this in the aquarium gravel or other small rocks. You can also use the sealant to attach the plastic aquarium plants directly to a larger rock. Either way, the plant will sink to the bottom and stay there.
