It’s very important to set some plants in an aquarium. Aquatic plants offer the fishes with food and oxygen. To maintain the plants in a healthy state its best to keep the aquarium in a place where there is adequate light. Like all plants aquatic plants take in carbon dioxide and give out oxygen. So in some aquariums carbon dioxide pumps are used to provide them with adequate carbon dioxide. When an aquarium is well planted newly born baby fishes will have plenty of hiding places and this will save them from being eaten by other fishes. Planting aquatic plants in a glass tank adds to the beauty of an aquarium greatly. Live bearing aquatic fishes love planted aquariums while fishes like gold fishes and carps eat these plants in large amounts so in presence of these fishes some aquatic plants may be harmed. Many fishes lay their eggs on the leaves of these plants and so if you want your fishes to lay eggs your aquarium should be properly planted.
