Aquascaping is the term used for designing aquarium landscapes. This is where plant compositions, reproductions of landscapes above water or natural biotopes are created. An aquascaping aquarium contains no or few fish and invertebrates. This way the nutrient supply for plants is reduced and their growth is limited. Nitrogens, phosphorus and other minerals become scarce substances and need controlled and exact re-dosing. For healthy growth in their beautiful underwater landscape the plants need light, CO2 and the right nutrients. 
Volcanic rock 
The highly porous volcanic rock fulfils important functions in an aquascaping aquarium: Firstly it forms a stable foundation for further rock constructions and/or root wood, which would otherwise slip downwards through the soil. Secondly many beneficial bacteria settle inside the porous structure. The porousness of the rock structure also enables the nutrient to penetrate it and it thus supplies numerous minerals enabling the plants to take root and grow well inside it. 
The calculation formula for the right amount of substrate is: length (cm) x width (cm) x height (cm): 1000 = litres JBL ProScape VolcanoMineral

  • Vibrant plants

    First purchase this week and I was so pleased. The plants were so healthy and vibrant. It's got me thinking about replanting my other tank with more plants! Will definately be buying from them again

    Wow! Was recommended to visit and have to say that anyone looking for plants and equipment this is definitely the place to go.
    Amazing range. Not the normal few plants chucked into a tank. Absolutely incredible. Very friendly and knowledgeable staff.

  • Quick service, fantastic plants

    I have ordered from Aquarium Gardens for the first time after seeing them on social media. Well what can I say except WOW, the plants were a really good price, they arrived on time actually quicker than I expected! They arrived in absolutely fantastic condition as if I had picked them out myself, well packaged. The plants themselves were bigger than what I expected to get so definitely value for money and the root systems were well established, can't wait to see them get bigger in my aquariums. Will definitely buy from this company again.
