With its full, green leaves, the Java Fern does well in almost any freshwater aquarium. It's hardy enough for a first-time owner and can be planted alone or in groups-tank space permitting.
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.
Place your aquarium in a low-traffic area, away from direct sunlight and drafts.
Planting your natural aquarium:
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.
These are the fastest-growing and tallest plants.
Things to watch for:
If you notice any of the signs described above, check your aquarium water quality and consult an in-store Aquatics Specialist.
