Planted aquariums are one of the most beautiful and striking creations you can add to your home. Many hobbyists think keeping a planted tank requires more time and money, when in fact this couldn't be farther from the truth. Low tech planted aquariums actually require far less maintenance when compared to the traditional setup. This means more time staring and less time fretting over water changes and algae problems.
