CO2 is essential for plant’s photosynthesis but not friendly to your fish. A higher level of CO2 in the aquarium water can be deadly. So, proper dosing is the key, and you will require a reliable CO2 system for this.
Light is the most critical factor to consider in planted aquariums. It will dictate the outcome of your aquarium irrespective of if you are there or not. Lighting plays an extensive role.
Hello, everyone! Welcome to my aquarium blog. Fishkeeping is my passion, and I started this fascinating hobby back in 2006. Besides my engineering profession, I deeply studied many fishkeeping topics since I started building my home aquarium. I researched effective aquarium filtration and lighting of planted aquariums. I am keeping 20+ species of freshwater and saltwater fish as my aquatic pet collection. I successfully experimented with a complex ecosystem inside the aquarium, biotope aquariums, aquaponics, etc. I would love to share some learnings from my hands-on experience of the last 15 years. Hopefully, my sharing will be somewhat helpful to make your aquarium journey awesome!
