No Substrate Required

Don't have and don't want substrate? Not a problem. Contrary to popular belief, it is entirely possible to have a beautiful, plant-filled aquarium without substrate / soil. In fact, many plants do not like being buried in substrate. Anubias spp. are a perfect example. The species prefers to be tied, leaving its rhizomes exposed to flowing water. Burying the plant actually causes the rhizomes to rot, eventually leading to death of the plant. We've taken the guesswork out of which plants to use; browse our selection of aquatic plants that do not need aquarium soil. Most can be tied to your hardscape, allowing you to avoid the hassle of maintaining gravels and other substrates.
