The Tropica Aquarium Soil is burned from valuable clays and ensures good and active growth of the plants right from the beginning. The positive nutrient balance has a particularly beneficial effect on the development of reddish nuances in the plants. Tropica Aquarium Soil is a complete substrate that can be used without any further supplements. In addition, this Soil is an active substrate that slightly lowers the pH and has a weak influence on the chemistry of the water. It is therefore also ideally suited for shrimp tanks.

It is recommended to perform at least two water changes per week during the first three weeks after the aquarium has been newly set up.


  • Active substrate
  • Grain size of 2 - 3 mm
  • Provides good growth
  • Can be used without any other types of bottom layer
  • Stimulates the development of reddish nuances



Aquatic plants originating from the Danish aquatic plant nursery Tropica differ from those from other nurseries by their excellent quality. Extremely high standards and a very varied range of plants make setting up an aquarium or aquascape a very pleasant experience. Healthy water plants are an essential basis for an aquarium that's practically free from algae.

Tropica's well-planned product range is constantly enriched with new innovative aquatic plants. For aquascapers and aquatic plant enthusiasts, plants by Tropica are always a great choice.
