Plants Weights are ideal for using to anchor plants to the bottom of the aquarium. Certain fish that like to forage and uproot plants can cause havoc in the planted aquarium by digging them up and leaving you to re-plant them again. With these lead plant weights, you can wrap them around the base of the plant (gently) and they will keep the plant in place.

Soft and malleable so can be cut or folded into desired shape or size.

Perfectly safe in aquariums - they've been used for over 50 years in the hobby.

For those who have a problem with bottom-dwelling fish such as loaches, this is just what you need.

Sold individually so if you want 10 for example add 10 in the quantity box.

Lead weights arrived. All fot for purpose only downside, looked like they had been used previously not new. But a weight is a weight.

Really good product. Quite thick lead so good weight and long so can be cut in half for smaller plants.

Found these easy to use, and have, so far,prevented the fish from rooting out the plants.

Ask a question about this product
Would these be safe to use to weigh down slices of courgette for the fishes to munch on?
