Live Aquarium Plants


      Aquatic plants are an essential component of any healthy aquarium or pond ecosystem. They provide oxygen, food, and shelter for fish and other aquatic creatures, and they help to maintain water quality by absorbing excess nutrients. Aquatic plants also add beauty and natural aesthetic to any tank. There are a wide variety of aquatic plants to choose from, each with their own unique characteristics and requirements. Some popular types include floating plants, stem plants, and foreground plants. Some species can be planted in substrate while others can float in the water. Certain aquatic plants can also help to reduce algae growth, making it easier to maintain a clean and clear tank. Choosing the right plants for your aquarium or pond can help to create a healthy and beautiful underwater environment for your fish and other aquatic creatures.

      Aquatic plants are beautiful and easy to plant in aquariums.  Planted aquariums have many benefits including removing Nitrite and Nitrate. All live aquarium plants for sale on Splashy Fish are submerged grown and cover by our Live Arrival Guarantee.

      Great experience! The owner is very knowledgeable. I've been specifically looking for a reputable place to buy corydoras, and i found it! They've been very healthy. It's great to know a local place exists with an owner who has a true passion in ensuring you receive the top notch quality you're looking for. Never again will i buy corys from petsmart or petco!!

      My first time of ordering fish online. With it being winter I was a little concerned with the mail. Placed my order late Monday night. I get a text Wednesday afternoon it was shipped. The box was dropped at my door this morning. It was well packaged and the fish were well bagged. I followed the acclimation guide and all is looking great.

      I’ve been looking for a variety of fish for my tank and unfortunately, because of the pandemic, many places are experiencing shortages and limited varieties on their normal stock. I thankfully stumbled upon this place by searching online And couldn’t be happier. Nguyen is such a nice and knowledge guy, and was able to get all the fish I was looking for! Fish came quickly and all seem to be thriving. Defiantly will come back for all my fish needs. Thank you !

      I received amazingly fast friendly service and beautiful fish. My order was shipped the same day I ordered, which is practically unheard of when it comes to buying fish online. The fish arrived well packaged and were active. They had color and looked healthy. I am very happy with my purchase!

      Went here for a fish and advice on setting up the tank for a young child because the fish in the big pet stores looked unhealthy. The proprietor was as helpful as one could be, answered all our questions and offered great advice based on our needs. The space was small, but he made excellent use of it and you could see all the fish were healthy and active. He even showed us how to train them. He clearly cares for his fish and was just so knowledgeable on every topic relating to keeping fish. Appointment was required. We will definitely be going back for our fish needs.
