The benefits of live aquarium plants over artificial in an aquarium are numerous. They are closer to the animals' natural environments, are less likely to harm the fish, can lower nutrients in the aquarium over time, provide grazing and breeding grounds, and are visually more dynamic than plastic plants or silk plants.
