Is it possible to over plant a tank? It so how can you tell when it’s too much

Recommended Posts

Following,  my novice thoughts are this: as long as you can keep up with the nutritional and lighting needs of the plants, plant away. But eventually even the most expirenced Aqua horticulturist will reach a tipping point  where he/she can not keep up with a plants needs, AKA "over planted". I'm sure there will be more thoughtful answers that will follow,  these are just a novices thoughts on the subject.

With plant lighting and nutrients set aside for a moment, it is ultimately a matter of opinion if your tank is over planted. You are the one caring for and maintaining this slice of nature, so you are the one who gets to decide that. Does it look bare to you? Add more plants. Is it too busy or full to your eye? Remove plants.
