Live Plants Provide More Natural Habitat For Fish
Live plants provide a more natural habitat for fish and offer benefits that cannot be duplicated by artificial plants. During daylight hours, they take in carbon dioxide and give off oxygen, thus contributing to a healthy habitat. Live plants also harbor bacteria that help in the breakdown of waste. Artificial plants are an excellent option for beginners. Unlike live plants, they will not die, grow too large, or become tattered and unattractive. They can even be repurposed with bleach to make sure no harmful bacteria or pests remain. Aquariums can be beautiful with fake plants. Ultimately, it will be up to the personal preference of the owner of the aquarium. . . .
