Aquatic Plants

We are happy to offer the largest selection of aquatic plants in the Bay Area. Make sure you come in and see them for yourself.

Why We Love Aquatic Plants

We've found that including live plants in your aquarium has so many benefits. It can establish the eco-system of your tank more completely and with much more room for error. Large amounts of rapidly growing plants process excess fish waste and provide an oxygen-rich, natural environment for your fish to thrive.

Also live plants add a whole dimension to the hobby that you don't get with just fish. You can create amazing, living underwater landscapes that can be an avenue of creative expression and a source of pride. Imagine combining all the best parts of pet ownership, gardening and bonsai in a single activity.

If you imagine your aquarium as a canvas, we've got so many wonderful colors, shapes and textures for you to create stunning underwater aquascapes where your fish will thrive.

Featured Plants

Pogostemon Stellata, Narrow

Wonderful, feathery plant with bronze leaves with purple highlights. Does best in higher lighting with good CO2 and fertilization. Closer to the light, the plant will develop multiple stems like a crown

Elatine Triandra

Bright green creeping foreground that is relatively new to the hobby. Grows quickly with CO2 supplementation and stays low to the ground in brighter light. Long oval leaf shape makes it a unique carpet plant or middle of the tank bush.

Vallisineria Spiralis Leopard

Long grass that appreciates harder water (supplement soft East Bay and SF water with Seachem Equilibrium). Leaves accented with small brown spots. Will grow in lower light.

Pogostem Helferi (syn. Eriocaulon downoii)

Wonderfully unique, rare foreground plant that looks like a mini succulent. Will grow in medium light but thrives much better with consistent CO2 and good fertilization. Really unique plant for the front of your tank.

Ludwigia Inclinata var. Verticillata 'Cuba'

Brilliant stem plant with feathery full leaves. Grows quickly if given the right conditions making it a good plant to prevent algae in higher light tanks. Needs consistent trace element fertilization, CO2 and strong light for maximum growth. Rewarding plant for someone looking for a challenge.
