It sounds like your aquarium has inadequate plant nutrition

How to be sure

Your aquarium plants are looking a little lack lustre, not growing well and perhaps even wilting or dying.

Step 1 – Treat your aquarium

  • Treat your aquarium with Plant Food and Plant CO2 to enhance nutrients in the water.
  • Consider improving your aquarium lighting by upgrading to a high output LED lighting system such as Tri-Spec LED that encourages plant health and growth.
  • Along with improved lighting, use an auto timer or App controller to mimic more natural day/night lighting cycles.
