Planted aquariums are a really beautiful addition to any home , the plants are generally easy to care for and when given the correct care will create dense and stunning layouts .
Just like fish , plants need trace elements to be added which don't exist in the aquarium . Trace elements can be added by using a substrate such as Seachem Flourite or by adding liquid additives . Seachem Flourish trace introduces a broad range of these trace elements which are essential for plant health and growth . Trace elements are depleted through utilization ( i.e being used) , oxidation and precipitation and so it is essential that trace elements are kept topped up . We recommend that Seachem Flourish trace be used with Seachem flourish for the best results.
