Choosing Aquarium Plant Weights (Buying tips)

Pliability: Choose soft aquarium plant weights that you can twist easily.

Size: Choose aquarium plant weights less than half an inch thick to keep them invisible in the aquarium.

Choose a rolled aquarium plant weight instead of the cut variety when tying down numerous plants in different sizes. It is also more economical.
