Aqua essential Tips
I have been reading Richard Cale's Tips for quite some time now, perhaps even from Tip No 1. I have been using Neutro T and Neutro Co2 as directed throughout that time. Prior to receiving Richard's Tips I was a constant consumer of plants; They just seem to constantly and slowly fade away while at the same time I was plagued with algae. Now I find that I rarely need to buy a plant (normally just for variety) and no algae problems at all, but spend time pruning plants removing old leaves etc and keeping my tank looking pristine. This, and regular (weekly) water changes of 20-30%, have transformed my tank and the success I enjoy with my little tropical environment in my study. Many thanks Richard and long my your tips continue.

No need to go anywhere else
Having been a customer of AquaEssentials for many years, after a break from the hobby I knew where I had to go back to for a great range of aquarium plants, fertilisers and décor. My current tank has been planted entirely with stock from AE, using liquid carbon and the Neutro + fertilisers - after just under a week I have great growth :) I'll be back once the tank has cycled for some Amano shrimp!

I have recently started aquascaping a new aquarium (nearly done) I found aquaessentials whilst searching for quality aquatic plants. I made my first order and it came in a most timely manner, I opened the box to find well wrapped, cool plants in great condition ready to go. This, of course, led to more orders and the quality remained great.
I am very very pleased with aquaessentials, so much so that I've just ordered again and I'm passing the good name around my social circles online.
I can't recommend aquaessentials enough, fantastic.

The service is second to none, the plants are first rate and the staff are extremely friendly and knowledgeable, but the real bonus is no snails!.
Attached is a photo of one of the actual recipients of the plants whose home they're for. This is Fissh, and if she is happy so am I.

If you are thinking of setting up a planted aquarium, the best thing you can do is speak to Richard and his team at Aquaessentials. When I embarked on my project, I thought I had done the research, I was confident of success, I thought I had it all perfect and was going to have a wonderful aquarium. I could not have been more wrong. Thankfully Aquaessentials were there to help, their free impartial advice has been excellent and help me to turn my aquarium from a complete disaster to a blossoming and successful aquascape. Richard has a wealth of knowledge second to none, his help is constructive and informative, he has made the mistakes and learnt the hard way so that you don’t have to. Furthermore the products and plants they provide are excellent and competitively priced. So if your new to this, send an email to the team and explain what your planning or what you have started, they will guide you to success and get the results you want to achieve. Thanks Aquqessentials you have and continue to be brilliant. Tom Elliott, Leeds.
I will do the recommendations for the neutro and CO2 asap, I have found that I have had to up the dosage considerably from the directions, but I expected that, and I’m getting good results. Whilst there are still challenges and with your advice I am confident now and the tank is developing well. I had underestimated how much dedication you have to give to it to get it off the ground, and to keep on top of it. I have held back from introducing shrimp, until after my holiday, I think its worth waiting a few weeks and add stock when i can keep an eye on things. I am thinking of a mix of Amano and neocardia shrimps, and then introduce the fish.
