LOVE the Aquaessential Tips that are emailed.
As a beginner (with a low tech tank), I receive straightforward info to solve straightforward issues without any fancy hitech mumbo-jumbo — just straight to the point clear and concise info - keep 'em coming! Will definitely order some hardware when next in the UK as appreciation.

Excellent plants

Excellent plants

It has been just over a week since I received the plants that I ordered. The company service and the quality of the plants is excellent. All of the plants that I ordered are growing well and look healthy. The plants arrived well packed in pots and labelled as to what species. The overall look of the plants was amazing and I was surprised at the quality and price of each plant as many other suppliers only supply cuttings with no root growth for the same price or more. Thank you for the excellent service.

The plants I received were of very good quality and started to grow in a few days.
The delivery was quick and the plants were well packed with good insulation and protection.
I would recommend this supplier for the quality of the plants and the variety of products it stocks.

What a relief

What a relief

After many attempts and as many failures I now have a great looking tank of healthy plants. I still have a long way to go and a lot to learn ,but the help I have received through the advise and tips from Richard has been invaluable. I have asked so many people and aquarium experts over the years and never succeeded to maintain my tank the way I wanted, but reading the advise from Richards tip thing started dropping into place and making so much sense. I feel more confident knowing I have somewhere to go that I can trust if I have difficulties.
I could not recommend aqua essential enough

No1 Shop online

No1 Shop online

since I've been following and ordering online items for tank the life in tank is full of colour.
The plant growth is tremendous following all advice given in fact I have to trim plant on a regular basis.
The service for ordering is simple, quick and efficient. Products are high quality and for what you get easily out do commercial shops for value for money. Next thing to do in tank is swap some of my plants around due to how vigorous they grow sometime they take over the tank LOL, but that could be my fault so I've been trimming and dumping and replanting where an area my look bare so will have to get suitable plants for that area. Due to wide variety on offer its a difficult choice to make.
This shop definitely a rating of at least 100 out of 100. If you need to improve, upgrade or just starting out Definitely use them...

Since I took the plunge and set up my planted aquarium I decided to try and source my plants by mail order. Aqua essentiall was the firm I decided to try. The plants are healthy and arrived well packaged, but it’s the advice and tips you get to help you get the best from them that sets this firm apart from the rest. Having tried and failed in the past with plants, being told by shop staff to pop them in the tank and they take care themselves. I followed Aquaessentials advice and tips on how to care for the plants with a co2.setup,fertiliser,and a couple of other ingredients I now have a healthy planted aquarium.

Number 1 shop

Number 1 shop

This is probably the best aquatic shop online been using them for over 2 years and have never had a problem. Always great quality products and great prices.
Had a few algae problems in my tank, so decided to sign up for the tips and tricks and it helped me figure out the problem was the basics instead of looking for the complex problems. The internet is full of useless information so if you ever have issues these are the people to speak to.
Just about to scape my 5ft again and this is where I’m spending my money. Only place to shop if you ask me.

Great find

Great find

I have recently found Aqua Essentials following reaching out via email to enquire about their plants. I have been struggling to find a secondary reputable supplier of aquarium plants following a couple of poor experiences and am thrilled to say Aqua Essentials have not only met, but exceeded my expectations. Fantastic range of plants for beginners and advanced aquascapers, no fuss ordering, great email tips, prompt delivery and exemplary customer service. My plants are growing in well and I am very happy with the quality. Refreshing to find a company that clearly cares about what they are selling. 5*

Fantastic Quality Plants

Fantastic Quality Plants

I ordered 2 pots of Pygmy Chain Swords (E. Tennelus) via Amazon for the foreground of my 50l aquarium. They were planted in playsand ferted with clay and in water that's dosed with E. I. and CO2. Each pot yielded 5-6 plants which were all in excellent condition. They DID however have emersed leaves (meaning that, in the nursery, they were grown with only the roots in water. Its now been 2 weeks and there has been zero signs of die back, submerged growth has started and they are even throwing out runners!
Delivery was on time and packaging was excellent.
I very strongly recommend Aqua Essentials for all types of plants.
