The idea of adding plastic plants has made many aquarium owners shudder. At one time plastic plants were considered bulky eyesores added by novices to make their aquarium look better. You didn’t have to have a magnifying glass in hand to be able to tell that the plants weren’t real, all you had to do was look at them and there was no doubt.

Artificial aquarium plants are preferred over live plants by many fish enthusiast because they do not affect the oxygen level in the tank. In addition, these plants last long when compared to live plants and they do not tend to outgrow the aquarium. Like all other things in the aquarium, artificial plants also need to be cleaned once in a while so that they remain neat. Artificial plants are usually made of plastic or silk. The best thing to do when cleaning them is to use materials that are not too harsh.Smart 'ible! :D One thing to be cautious of however, when picking out the plastic plants, is sometimes they contain a wire inside (to help bend the plant in any direction you wish.) You don't want to put the wired ones in your aquarium, they'll rust and make a mess. Sometimes you can pull the wire out, often you can't. It's easy to tell which ones have wires inside though, just bend them and if it stays bent, it's got a wire!Today's artificial aquarium plants are available in plastic and in silk, and their appearance rivals that of live plants. Artificials offer many benefits, such as being easy to remove and clean. They have no light preferences, do not affect the oxygen levels, and do not create waste or carry parasites. Furthermore, they won't die, outgrow your aquarium or become ugly from the abuse some creatures inevitably inflict upon living plants. However, as with all other aquarium furnishings and equipment, they do occasionally need to be cleaned to remain attractive.Adding decorations to your aquarium can be almost as much fun as putting the fish in the tank for the first time. Adding plants to your aquarium can be a very cost effective way to spruce things up a bit. Plastic plants are inexpensive, and require very little maintenance or care once they are placed in the aquarium.There are two types of plants for an aquarium: live plants and artificial plants (which can be made of plastic, silk, or other textiles). They all have their pros and cons and depending on your available time, dedication, and kept, determining which is best for you can be quite difficult.Aquarium plastic plants today are nothing like what they once were. They can look so real, that you have to actually touch them to tell that they are plastic. These plants are made more realistic by the fact that many are made of silk, which allows them to move freely within the water.
