    Instructions:

    Water temperature:
    Aquatic plants require a tropical community aquarium with water temperatures ranging between 72-78 degrees F (22-26 degrees C). Use an aquarium heater to maintain water temperature.

    Adding plants:
    Whether you're just starting your aquarium or introducing new plants into your tank, make sure to add only one or two plants at a time.

    Lighting:
    Most tropical plants require sunlight each day, year round. The duration and consistency are essential for plants to thrive. Natural aquariums must be equipped with the means to provide 12 hours of simulated sunlight each day.

    Plant fertilizer:
    Fertilizer should only be added according to the dosage instructions on the label, and only when needed (as in the case of a water change). Plants will grow best if fertilized moderately and regularly after water changes rather than given larger quantities of fertilizer on a less-regular basis.

    Fish and plants:
    Small schooling fish are highly recommended for a natural planted aquarium; larger fish often uproot plants. The adult size and eating habitats of a fish should always be taken into consideration.

    Water changes:
    Test water weekly to assess water quality. It is recommended that 10% of your aquarium water be changed per week. At the very least, 25% of your aquarium water should be changed per month. For optimal health, regular water changes not only prevent the undesirable accumulation of excess nutrients, but also remove excess nitrates and waste products of the fish and plants.

    Aquarium placement:
    Place your aquarium in a low-traffic area, away from direct sunlight and drafts.

    Planting your natural aquarium:

    Foreground plants:
    Usually stay very short and help fill in the front part of the aquarium.

    Middle ground plants:
    These plants grow anywhere form 4-10 inches tall.

    Background plants:
    These are the fastest-growing and tallest plants.

    Things to watch for:
    Poor growth
    Brown spots on leaves
    Plants appear weak, pale green to yellow, stems have few leaves
    Plants cease to grow and die off
    Stem plants have long internodes and small leaves
    If you notice any of the signs described above, check your aquariumwater quality and consult an in-store Aquatics Specialist.
