Stem Plant Care

Cutting back stem plants with plant scissors can lead to fuller and better growth in a planted aquarium. If you notice that your stem plants are a little ‘leggy’, try cutting them at any point on the stem, then re-plant the tops amongst the existing plant bed. It is easier to use some plant tweezers to plant the stems into your substrate. This can thicken growth and lead to healthier plants. Don’t forget that plants also need the right kind of lighting. Some require CO2 and all will benefit from feeding with liquid fertilisers such as Plant Food +

Macroalgae Care

If you own a marine aquarium, you might have a refugium with macroalgae growing in the sump. This is a great way to naturally control waste nutrients such as nitrate and phosphate. Cutting back the macroalgae little and often will encourage more growth. More growth = more waste removal! If you are trying to grow macroalgae, remember that it uses a lot of iodine to grow. It is always a good idea to test for iodine levels. If they are low, you can add more iodine to the aquarium to help your macroalgae flourish.
