Since all planted aquariums lack CO2, it is extremely important that they are supplemented with it.
In fact, 40 to 50% of a plant’s dry weight is composed of carbon. For optimal condition of aquarium plants, some CO2 supplementation is necessary.
CO2 will help ensure that the most important nutrient is available to plants to maintain vigorous, lush and vibrant growth and condition.
To guarantee perfect conditions for aquarium plants, appropriate lighting and fertilizing is highly recommended.
