Why Aquarium Plants Need CO2
Carbon is most important for plants during photosynthesis and is essential for vigorous aquatic plant growth. In nature, aquatic plants receive carbon from several sources found in their environment. In an enclosed ecosystem like an aquarium, however, there are not enough sources of carbon, especially for a densely planted tank. Although some CO2 is produced by fish respiration and the decomposition of organics, it is still limited. So, supplemental CO2 helps plants in an aquarium to assimilate the nutrients in the water that surrounds them. If the right amount of CO2 is present with an adequate light supply, then photosynthesis will be more active, allowing the plants to readily absorb more nutrients from the water.
