This is my biggest planted aquarium to date. Since starting the planted aquarium hobby, one of my favorite things to do are growing different types of plants. I find it important to take the time to learn the way plants grow and a great way of doing that is setting up a collectoritis style planted aquarium. Allowing yourself to become more experienced with different species of plants will help you in the long run and help you determine what types of plants are best suited for your water conditions, equipment setup, and the duration of your aquascape. Some plants may grow faster than others and will require frequent trimming, whereas some plants may need a specific water parameter in order to thrive well. If you aren’t sure how well a plant will do or look in your aquascape, try growing it in a separate aquarium and find out how it grows for you.
