Why choose aritificial aquarium plant for your lovely baby?

It is no denying fact that live plants have their virtues, they absorbs CO2 (in daylight) and give off O2 in daylight, and inhibits algae growth. But this virtues are also the source for trobleness. If you want them to play their duty to absorbs CO2 and give off O2, you aquarium should alsays place in a lightful position and the decayed leaves has to been clean very in time, or the created waste will cause many parasites. And also not easy to clean. You’ll got it when you do it.

Artificial Plants

Artificial plants have become so sophisticated that they rival real plants in appearance. Unlike live plants, they will not die, grow too large, or become tattered and unattractive. If they become dirty or covered with algae, they can easily be removed and cleaned. Artificial plants have no light requirements, as opposed to live plants which often require lighting beyond what the average fish keeper has for their aquarium.

Silk and plastic plants come in a wide range of sizes and colors, and are easily obtainable years round. Because they are never in an aquarium before you purchase them, they will not bring in pests or parasites from other places. They will not decay and foul the tank. Granted, they will also not contribute to the habitat in the way live plants do, but they are an excellent option - especially for the beginner. Artificial plants are also an ideal choice for fish that are prone to uproot or eat live plants.

I agree, I like artificial plants. The main reason for this is because I have cichlids and they are not very nice to the plants. Every now and then I look into my aquarium only to find some of the plants floating at the surface of the water. There are usually large pits in the gravel where I can see the bottom glass of the tank. If I had real plants they would never survive.
