This is a special listing for a customised plant pack based on your budget and needs (which you can type in the "Order Notes/Comments" when you check out).
We will go through your Order Note/Comments thoroughly and we will then customise a plant pack specific to your selected budget and needs so that you can have the ideal/very suitable plants to create a beautiful aquascape based on your selected budget and needs.
All you need to do is to select your budget and when you check out, just type your aquarium tank details and any request if you have into the Order Note/Comment section which appears near the Shipping Address column. You can also message us your tank photo if you like (optional but beneficial).
Your aquarium tank details should include the following information:
-Tank Size (liters)
- Low or High Tech (whether you have Co2 or no Co2 supplementation)
- General list of plants that you currently have if you can remember
- Type of Aquascape and look you want to achieve (below are some examples)
Here are some aquascape types which we can focus on:
- Nature aquarium / Rainforest and jungle aquascape (popular)
- Dutch aquascapes
- Low tech plants aquascape
- Japanese Iwagumi
- Island-style aquascape
- Moss capes, mountainscapes, Avatar-style scapes
- Unique plants-oriented aquascape
- Rhizome (Buce, Anubias) and fern-oriented aquascapes
- Asymmetric and symmetric aquascapes
- Aquatic and semi-submersed part of terrarium and Paludarium
(aquatic part of Exo Terra terrarium, Dooa terra base, etc.)
(If you are not sure what aquascape you would like, no worries. At the very least, just let us know your tank details like size (liters), whether it is low tech/high tech and we can customise a nice, mixed variety plant pack that will give a natural and beautiful appearance to your tank. If there is no Order Note/Comment left for us, we will prepare a mixed variety plants pack just following the selected budget).
We will provide you with the right plants that will match your budget. In most cases, we would provide even more. For example, if your budget is $150 and you had paid $150, most likely when we customise and pack your plants pack, there would be around $180 worth.
What we do recommend is to set the right budget for your aquarium. For example, if you already have a planted tank and just need some budget plants to fill in some space in your tank, a budget of $70-$120 should be fine but if you need more variety and more quantity to fill up a bigger space of your tank, then a budget of $130-$180 may be needed.
To estimate, a budget plant is usually $15 a portion. For example, Peacock Moss 6x6cm flat portion is $15, Anubias Nana Petite foreground plant 5-7 leaves is $15, Needle Leaf Fern 10+ leaves is $15, a budget stem plant of 5-8 stems is around $15. So a $150 plants pack can get you around 10 different types of budget plants if you specifically want every portion to be different. In some aquascapes for example jungle and rainforest theme, it is necessary to have multiple portions of a certain plant such as Peacock Moss or Christmas Moss because you need sufficient coverage to create the natural effect. So a $150 plants pack might get you 5 plant types X 2 portions each.
If you want a stunning aquascape with some rare and unique plants to be included in your pack as special feature/highlight plants of aquascape, then a budget of $150-$300 or more would be necessary as 1 rare and unique plant might already cost $30+.
Here are some examples and a general budget that suit:
NATURAL RAINFOREST/JUNGLE PACK (most popular)
Rainforest/jungle theme aquascape custom plants pack for a new aquarium that currently has little or no plants.
We can provide different plants for all regions (foreground, midground, background, floating)

2 feet medium aquarium (60L-100L) : budget $150-$225
3 feet large aquariums (140L-160L): budget $250-$300
4 feet large aquariums (200-250L): budget $350+
LOW TECH PLANTS AQUASCAPE (excellent for low tech tanks)
This is perfect for low tech tanks that do not have CO2. We will help select plants suitable for low tech based on your tank needs. This can include a mix variety of beautiful ferns (not just standard Java Fern), mosses for natural effect, easy Anubias, stem plants suitable for low tech, perhaps some Bucephalandra depending on budget, etc. The budget estimation for this would be similar to the above estimation.
DUTCH AQUASCAPE (popular)
Dutch aquascape primarily uses a mixed variety of beautiful stem plants of various colours (different tones of green, red, purple, pink, orange) and some carpeting plants
Nano and small aquarium (20L-40L) : budget $60-$80
2 feet medium aquarium (60L-100L) : budget $100-$125

4 feet large aquariums (200-250L): budget $200-$250
JAPANESE IWAGUMI AQUASCAPE
Japanese Iwagumi aquascape uses a large quantity of usually one main carpeting plant to create a simple but aesthetically beautiful green carpet scenery.
Micranthemum Monte Carlo carpeting plant is around $10 for a 5cm diameter portion so the budget can be adjusted based on how many are needed.
For example, if it is for a 3 feet tank (140L-160L), 10 portions may be needed ($100 budget) while for a 4 feet tank (200L-250L), 15 portions may be needed ($150 budget). If preferring to add some extra plant types like Mini Pellia or moss for the mountain part of Iwagumi aquascape, the budget can be increased to accommodate for that.
