Things to remember:

Water temperature:

Semi-aquatic plants require a tropical community aquarium with water temperatures ranging between 72-78º F (22-26º 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, amphibians and plants:

Toads and frogs are highly recommended for a natural planted aquarium- terrarium. Depending on the depth of the water and size of the amphibians and water temperature certain species of fish can be added.

Water changes:

Test water weekly toassess water quality. It is recommended that 10% of youraquarium water be changed per week. At the very least, 25% of your aquariumwater 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.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Mondo Grass is NOT an aquatic plant My wife brought this plant home and added it to a planted aquarium. The green blades or leaves started turning yellow and it looked like it was going to die. I took it out of the water and planted it in potting soil. The plant is doing great now and looks nice.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Not a true aquatic plant is correct! Ugh, I wish I'd known this before purchasing it. Goes to show you really need to do research on these things before going in to shop at these big box stores. Anyway, I loved the look of these grass up until they wilted and died about a month later. Waste of money. Don't buy!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Not an aquatic plant I bought 2 of these for my tank. They started to rot after 2 weeks, so I did some research. I have them planted in a flower bed because they should get blue flowers

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Not a true aquatic plant. I bought two of these a month ago, one has rotted away the other is in the process of rotting. Not for submersible applications!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from SNAILS! And brown color. I bought two of these plants about two months ago and within two weeks I began to notice a LOT of little snails crawling around my aquarium, which is not a problem for me, but is something to be aware of. Also, among all the other healthy plants in my tank, these two plants stick out as slightly brown in color. However, I've tried moving them to areas that receive more light in the tank, which has helped.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Not even fully aquatic I purchased this plant, thought it looked pretty nice, but after a week and a half it started to rot, researched and is not even fully aquatic, needs to be out of the water, don't buy it for a fish tank!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Not an aquatic plant Petsmart sells this as if it's a true aquatic plant, but it's not. I didn't realize this until I did some research after purchasing the plant. It will eventually rot in your tank. I don't know why petsmart sells this.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from I'd give it a miss... What a shame it doesn't say in the store that it is not a true aquatic species. I bought 2 because they were inexpensive and I wanted to get started with some cheaper plants. But, instead I wasted my money. After being submerged in an aquarium, the leaves will yellow, so little by little you have to take them off. And then, the root basically rots. They last a couple months maybe. I had to take them out of the substrate (how I found out that the roots actually do rot) and I have them draped over the top of the tank. The fish like to swim up and through the rotting roots. But, I have to move them each night to put the hood back on.
