Le dioxyde de carbone est nécessaire pour les réservoirs plantés qui sont essentiels pour maintenir certaines espèces de poissons dans leur meilleur état. Les réservoirs plantés ne sont pas seulement beaux pour l'aquascaping mais également utiles pour la santé des poissons. Tandis que plantes d'aquarium sont nombreux et très variés, ils ont tous besoin d'un approvisionnement constant en dioxyde de carbone pour se développer avec succès. Nuturer votre vie aquatique en même temps.

In a natural setting, water plants can take in CO2 from the nutrient-rich soil and from the air that is constantly being dissolved in the moving water. But in the case of an aquarium where there is hardly any soil and the water barely moves, the carbon dioxide ought to be supplemented by the CO2 system. The aquarium system, therefore, is necessary to keep plants growing healthy and strong. Consequently, the fish will also immensely benefit.

La raison pour laquelle les plantes d'aquarium ont besoin de tellement de dioxyde de carbone dissous est parce que cela facilite le processus de photosynthèse. Dans les plantes d'aquarium, le dioxyde de carbone se combine avec l'eau et la lumière et produit donc du sucre, qui est l'énergie de la plante. L'oxygène est le sous-produit des déchets qui résulte de l'ensemble du processus. Cet oxygène est très essentiel pour les poissons d'aquarium qui tirent l'oxygène de l'eau à travers leurs branchies.

From what is outlined above, it is now clear that aquarium carbon dioxide systems provide aquarium plants with the means to keep the aquarium fish healthy. Without this CO2, the aquarium plants would hardly be able to undergo photosynthesis and thereby make energy and provide the fish with the much-needed oxygen.

Some may not see the necessity of a carbon dioxide system as they think that the CO2 fish give off when they breathe is sufficient to sustain the entire tank of aquatic plants. They couldn't be more wrong. The CO2 that fish give off during breathing is not enough at all to sustain an entire tank of aquatic plants. There is a need for additional CO2 supplements in planted tanks to keep the aquatic plants healthy and constantly growing.

In nearly all cases, the fish can derive a direct benefit from CO2 system. For instance, many species of fish- such as barbs, discus, tetras, dwarf gouramis etc- prefer tanks with well-growing aquatic plants. These aquarium plants are necessary for the provision of shelter, the supply of extra oxygen to the water, and contribution to chemical and biological filtration.

The type of fish that a carbon dioxide system is suitable for usually depends on the kind of plants in your aquarium, fish and other factors unique to your planted tank. Consider all the factors before choosing a carbon dioxide system for your tank. It is also worth noting that no two CO2 systems are the same and there can be a huge difference in quality between any two systems. However we would always recommend you use a system sold by a reputable retailer. Our prices at CO2 Art start at a very reasonable rate and we can guarantee the reliability of all our products.
