At Sedgley Road Aquarium we carry a wide range of plants for indoor tanks and outdoor ponds.
The plants for outdoor ponds are in the main shop on the ground floor. We have a selection of marginal plants which usually go on a shelf in your pond, we have different coloured lily’s that can go grow very big, and bunches of oxygen plants that help add oxygen in to your pond.
The marginal and lily plants are in baskets ready to just place in your pool. The oxygen bunches are weighted down and can just be put in the ponds as they are. We also have pond baskets, pond soil, and hessian squares for re-potting your pond plants.
However we only stock pond plants in the spring and summer months.
The plants for indoor tropical and cold water tanks are found in the tropical fish room on the first floor. We have 5 free standing plant tanks in the middle of the tropical fish room and one big tank in the back tropical fish room.
In the five free standing plant tanks three of them have a mixture of bunched plants and the other two have a mixture of potted plants. We have low growing plants and taller back ground plants. So there is a nice mixture for small or larger tanks.
In the tropical fish room we have a mixture of woods in various sizes with plants attached; these would make lovely features in any tank. Plants add oxygen in to your water during the day, so for wild life ponds with no pumps, filters plants are very good to have in to help the water.
Plants need looking after, they do require light to help them grow. We carry a range of substrates that you can put underneath your gravel to help protect the plants roots to keep them healthy and help them grow. We also chemical and tablet foods to feed your plants. Plants are edible for your fish, so adding a bunch in to your tank can be a nice treat. Pop in to the shop and see what plants we have in stock today.
