Freshwater Plants

Planted aquariums are becoming more and more popular in the hobby. There are many advantages for adding live plants in your tank. The plants help oxygenate the water via photosynthesis, which not only helps your fish breathe but also helps prevent diseases. Live plants also consume nitrates in the water, which is the final step in the nitrogen cycle.

We have a large selection of aquatic plants that can be incorporated into any aquarium, including crypts, anubias, java fern, amazon swords, and more. Most plants require a certain type of light and various extra nutrients to really thrive in an aquarium. Sandy’s has everything you need to make your planted tank thrive.
