Planted Tank Combos or, “D’s Killer Planted Combos” – if you will are a good bit of fun for me as I get to have an empty canvas to work with in someones aquarium.
While I don’t get to completely see the end product with my own two eyes, I do get to hear back from people about how their Aquarium Plant Packs.
What is interesting is that HALF of the orders of Aquarium Plants I sell are Planted Combos of one kind or another.
My Aquarium Plant Packs come in a bunch of different shapes and sizes.
The best selling Aquarium Plant Package is the Beginner Planted Combo. Like it is titled, the Beginner Planted Combo is for beginners. It consists of basic hard to kill aquarium plants. There are no substitutions on customization of this aquarium plant package. It is what it it.
I also sell a great deal of the “Standard Aquarium Plant Combos” These step it up a bit. With the “Standard Aquarium Plant Package” you get more plants than with a Beginner Planted Combo. You also get more variety and an aquarium plant selection that is more tailored to your aquarium setup.
With the Standard Aquarium Plant Package, we ask that our customers provide a bit more detail about their aquariums.
Questions like, “What’s kind of planted aquarium substrate do you have?” “What kind of lights do you have on your aquarium including what kind of wattage and spectrum of the bulb?” With this Aquarium Plant Pack, we also want to know at what skill level you are with keeping both Aquarium Fish and Plants. Customers who fail to provide any of their planted aquarium information will be sent a nice variety of Hard to kill Aquarium Plants as we don’t want to send you plants that might now work in you tank. we default to easy stuff, aquarium plants like, Amazon Swords, Jungle val, Java Fern, Java Moss, Crypts and Dwarf Sag. The Standard Aquarium Plant Package will work well for planted aquariums up to a 55 gallon planted aquarium.
The Dustin’s Fish Tanks Combos start to get fancy when you step up to the ‘Silver Planted Aquarium Combo Package” This Aquarium Plant Pack is for an individual who has a budge for an aquarium setup that is over a 55 gallon. Typically these customers are looking for a one stop Aquarium Plant Package to make their Aquarium look sweet, right out of the gate. These packages require more extensive information about the individuals aquarium and perhaps a quick phone call to get just the details of the setup figured out. I like the Silver Aquarium Plant Packages the most because the individuals really rely on me to figure it out. These customers are typically middle aged, have a budget and just want to get a sweet setup from someone who knows what they are doing. Often times they will have the attitude of, “Whatever you think is good for my 75, go for it. ” Obviously a guy like me likes this kind of open slate to get rolling. Still other customers have a general theme or look they are going for. They might have a special piece of driftwood or a certain type of fish we are catering to. I like to have fish tank people with this combo give me 5 or 6 (or more) plants that they know that they want to have, I will then build the aquarium around that, filling in what other plants will look sweet.
Finally, The Golden Touch Combo…. This is an entirely custom Aquarium Plant Package for people with around a 75 gallon that want THE BEST Aquarium Plant Package we provide. I won’t sell one of the Golden Touch Combinations without first talking through it with the customer. Below is a photo of one of the Golden Touch Combos that we did for Harold and Elaine….(thanks Harold and Elaine as well for being such awesome customers 😉
