Artificial aquarium plants and associated decor can really make the appearance of your tank shine, creating an instant environment and  a scintillating underwater vista.

Many keeping aquariums deliberately choose these artificial plants and various bits of decor for a number of reasons, not the least being there simple care requirements.

Gorgeous And Low Cost.

Why not place your decorations in different locations each time you clean the tank?

Your fish will certainly enjoy exploring their new environment and you take pleasure from creating a raft of new nooks and crannies for them to seek out and inhabit.

The potential is vast and it's likely that you will never create the same scenario more than once and as well as looking great, all your artificial plants, driftwood, logs, bridges etc providing all the shelter your aquarium inhabitants require need no special substrate, lighting or the use of any additional supplements.

As well as those points, your tank decorations can also be a great way to disguise plumbing which can be unsightly, and are relatively inexpensive when compared to their living counterparts.

Keep It Clean.

In order to maintain an environment that is aesthetically pleasing and create a healthy environment for all your underwater, it's important to put a few minutes each month to clean your aquarium decorations.

Hassle Free.

All this stuff in your tank need not be too much of a burden or indeed take up to much of your time as given the correct tools and a few minutes just once a month, your aquarium will flourish.

To help keep algae under control using an aquarium conditioner which employs a form of beneficial bacteria to eliminate any organic build up on decor and aquarium surfaces.


Plastic plants? Come on professor, why not plastic fish or plastic shrimp! We all can keep the real thing without expensive co2 and the "Just re mortgaged my house to afford the new led lighting setup". Java moss,subwassertang, crypts,the list goes on of the REAL plants we can keep with just basic lighting. As for algae,we want this to grow for the things we are in this for - shrimp. Sorry, didn't mean to come on so strong, but I  hate it when someone will say "Check my new bobbing plastic scuba diver tank ornament!" aaaaaaaarrggghhh!!
