MIDGROUND PLANTS

Midground aquarium plants are aquatic plants that should ideally be placed in the midground section of an aquarium to help fill in the center of a planted tank. Some of these plants can grow tall in shorter aquariums but generally stay at a medium height in taller aquariums. These plants are great for filling out the central focal point of an aquascape.
