These plants can be kept with two or three fluorescent tubes and are relatively hardy species. Although some will survive and grow under only one or two tubes (with reflectors), they will not grow at an optimum rate and may not show their full health. Most of the plants in this group will do better with brighter light, but they do not require it.

The word aquarium originates from the ancient Latin language, aqua meaning water and the suffix rium meaning place or building. Aquariums are beautiful and look good anywhere! Home aquariums are becoming more and more popular, it is a hobby that many people are flocking too and fish shops are on the rise. Fish are generally easy to keep although do they need quite a bit of attention. Puppies and kittens were the typical pet but now fish are becoming more and more frequent in house holds. In recent years fish shops have noticed a great increase in the rise of people wanting to purchase aquariums and fish, the boom has been great for local shops as the fish industry hasnt been such a great industry before now.
