Once you receive these plants we know you'll be absolutely delighted with the choice and quality. Aqua Essentials has an amazing reputation for quality and we always live up to it. It's entirely up to you as to how you plant them in your aquarium, but always remove them from their pots and rock wool and then give them sufficient space to grow.

Don't forget your fertilisers when choosing your plants. Without fertilisers, you don't give plants the food they need to grow. We use Neutro Fertilisers in our nursery and we recommend you do too.

Ordered the mixed box to save having to select the plants myself.The selection was good and although they took four days to arrive they were in good condition.(Guernsey address) Very pleased with AE and all the advice and information available.

These plants were delivered in fantastic condition. The information on the labels was clear and easy to understand. I'm over the moon with how my tank looks now and couldn't recommend aqua essentials more highly.

I ordered the high tech option for my Juwel Vision 260 aquarium. They arrived the next day, well packed. Super quality plants, 12 different varieties, all labeled so no guess work! All growing well one week later.

The last of my 6 year old cichlids (blue frontosa) died ,being a tank buster meant rocks only in the tank.decided to go back to a planted community tank ,having trawled the local aquaria shops I was very disappointed at what was on "offer".for the first time I went on line and came across A.E.saw the plant collections on offer and decided to give them a try,Twenty four hours later the order arrived, superbly packaged and presented money well spent,a fortnight on and the growth is really beginning to show,the tank is looking really good.i would recommend this company to any one looking for quality plants and top notch service,you will not be disappointed.

Lightening speed delivery and really good quality plants. My only criticism is that the instructions on planting could be clearer; it says to remove them from the baskets but there's no instructions for re-attaching the weights, and some of the plants have no weights so I'm waiting for them to all float to the surface as we speak.

Guest
are all plants suitable for planting in substrate?

 
Staff
Absolutely :)

 
Guest
I am just building my 260 l tank and want to plant it up. I am putting an under-substrate heating element in for the benefit of the plants. Could you advise what substrate to use for these set of 40 plants please? Do I need different types to include a fertiliser etc? Thank you

 
Staff
Under substrate heating for plants is a waste of money and doesn't work! Save your money. I recommend Colombo FloraBase for all plants as a substrate. Use Neutro T as the fertiliser if your are not using CO2

 
Guest
Does this set include Hemianthus callitrichoides and Utricularia Graminifolia? We are looking to get a nice carpet in the tank:)

 
Staff
No - those 2 plants are considered difficult plants. If you did want them purchase them separately :)

 
Guest
re Hemianthus callitrichoides and Utricularia Graminifolia: OK, fair enough...What carpet plants do you typically include?

 
Staff
They vary from week to week so not set ones.

 
Guest
I am setting up my first planted tank Fluval Roma 240l with tetra complete substrate and unipac maui. No CO2 or substrate heating. Would the 200L pack of plants be sufficient.Aquarium base is 120cm x 40cm.Thankyou

 
Staff

Yes it would be about right :)


 
Guest
I like the idea of this plant selection for my new 240 litre tank but I would ideally like to use micranthemum Monte Carlo for the foreground. Would it be possible to have these included or is it strictly pot luck as to what you get? And if it is would I get something similar?

 
Staff

if you're after a specific plant then always best to choose those separately. Monte carlo's don't tend to go into mixed boxes due to their cost
