The best there is!

The best there is!

I have been an African cichlids keeper for a number of years and they have been able to destroy my efforts of using plants with ease. I tried using artificial plants and they are well named they look artificial.
When I found Aqua Essentials I was very impressed with the web site. I spoke to Richard for advice and he made excellent suggestions including using the very useful section where plants we divided by characteristics I.e not edible.
The plants I have received have exceeded my expectations, the quality is fabulous, the size is great and the prices are very reasonable for the product quality. When you compare these plants with the offerings from other sources Aqua Essentials blow the others right out of the water (no pun intended well perhaps a little one)
The plants have always arrived in great condition including the recent cold spell and problems with transportation.
I would not dream of looking anywhere else for plants. I have found

complete satisfaction in all my dealings with Aqua essentials

I wish to inform you of my complete satisfaction in all my dealings with Aqua essentials (Plants delivered in perfect condition each and every time) Information on the internet is most valuable, I depend greatly on the guidance offered on all aspects of this fantastic hobby. Please continue with what I consider to be the most reliable information I have found in all the years I have been involved with aquariums. My sincerest thanks and best wishes for the future. As a footnote Richard could you suggest an alternative to LED lighting, My thoughts on the matter (Light is too intense and I believe this results in the dreaded Black algae, I am experimenting with defusers reasonable results so far.

Wasn't sure if I was paying more than I needed for the plants looking at prices elsewhere.... WELL I WASNT...all plants came in A1 condition an so far every single one has survived and grown well (2 months later) everything has been great with the exception of my fancy goldfish happily pulling the odd plant out but they still do well when replanted. Thanks Richard your plants are CLASS. MERRY CHRISTMAS MATE.

My fish thank you!

My fish thank you!

I came across Richard and his website during the first lock down when my fish were desperate for some plants!!! There is a superb range to choose from, and good information on the plants. I chose quite a few and they were delivered quickly and very well packaged. The fish appreciated some greenery too. I've found the hints and tips useful. Might be an idea for him to list them somewhere on the website so we can go back to them if a problem occurs.

Great quality plants

Great quality plants

I've been using Aqua Essentials for many years now and still have a crypt going strong in my shrimp tank - which is at least 5 years old! There's always a great range of plants that you won't find out there in general aquatic retail and plenty of tips and advice for all aquarists and 'scapers, whether beginner or experienced. Every plant I have received from Richard over the years has been well packaged and arrived in excellent condition and health - 5 stars from me!

Excellent !!

Excellent !!

I have been using Aqua Essentials for my tank plant needs since the start of lockdown when my regular aquarium store was temporarily closed . I have not been back to my regular store even after they reopened as the variety and quality of the plants don't come close to those available on Aqua Essentials. Plants always arrive in great condition . Fantastic, would highly recommend !

Fantastic

Fantastic

Having had a planted tank for many years but never been happy with my scapeing I decided to order a selection under the Scaped For You section.
The plants, rock and wood arrived very quickly and it was very easy to follow the scapeing scheme and I now have a superb looking tank.
I can highly recommend Aqua Essentials for all your planted tank needs.
