Environment Aquarium Soil is an active substrate consisting of various fired and sterilised earths that was especially developed for aquarium use. It naturally lowers and stabilises the pH (depending on the parameters of the water you use, the pH will be lowered to 5.5 to 6.5) as well as water hardness and thus creates optimal conditions for softwater plants and animals in your tank.
The special properties of Environment Aquarium Soil make your water crystal clear. The fulvic acids contained in this substrate help create an optimal environment for plants, animals and microorganisms from day one.
- Environment Aquarium Soil is also suitable for use with undergravel filters
- The Powder Type is not suitable for this due to the small grain size
- On fish like that, permanently turbid water might be the result
- Not suitable for fish, shrimps or plants that need a high pH
- Made in Japan
- A slight turbidity of the water after setting up the aquarium will cease after a short time given that the filter works properly, and the water will be crystal clear afterwards
- Recommended soil height: Minimun 4 cm
- Do not rinse before use
- Spread the substrate evenly, or create your individual layout
- Fill in water carefully and slowly
In order to avoid upsetting the substrate when filling in water it is recommendable to use a small plate or something comparable to break the water stream.

Recomended by my shrimp seller ;-) Zuhter :-) No Amonnium in my case after one week with old filter and good starter bacteria this cycle will go fast .... (read more)

Nice dark brown color and regual is almost like a powder much ,much smaller granules than Aquasoil similar to Tropica ,a little bit dusty at the begining but all others are also I dont care for that will buy again in the future :O
PH holds steady at 5.20-5.25. Can't use this as substrate due to PH possibly killing everything I would like to have. (read more)

First time that i used this soil. Different grain sizes prevent soil from roiling down 'hills'. Almost no dust in water after filing the tank, second day clear water. (read more)

The grains doesn't smash easily, keeping good structure. The soil is more heavy than others 'amazonias' which is perfect for me for better planting (not floating plants after filling water).
A good surprise!
