About Us

Aqua Essentials are the UK's leading aquarium plant supplier in the UK. Founded by Richard in 2002, he still runs the business today (but now a team of 7). Quality of plants has always been the backbone of Aqua Essentials in order to stand out from the crowd and now, over two decades later, that hasn't changed. Whilst the range has expanded to over 250 species with 4 plant deliveries every week, it's a busy enterprise. All plants are in stock and ready to ship the same working day (Mon-Fri). Now, there's lots more on offer too from substrates, hardscape, fertilisers, LED lighting and more making it the go to shop in the UK.
