El Dorado River from the WIOdecor-Sands series by the manufacturer WIO is an decorative quartz sand in orange and a mixture of different ochre tones as well as a slightly variable grain size of 0,1 - 5 mm.
The sand looks very natural and can create cosmetic colour accents in the scape. The representation of a river course in the lowlands can be realised just as well as the design of a delta.
El Dorado River River Sand - Left dry, right wet
A scape can be set up as a South American aquarium with the pure El Dorado River Sand as substrate, which is also suitable as decorative sand for any other purpose.
Sand is usually a passive substrate that does not provide nutrients for the aquarium plants. Therefore, when setting up with sand as the sole substrate, the use of substrate fertiliser can be necessary. Fertiliser balls or tablets can be used to enrich specific parts of the aquarium with nutrients, so that especially plants with strong roots, such as cryptocorynes, can benefit from this.
- Shades of orange and ochre
- Natural quartz sand
- Grain size from 0,1 to max. 5 mm in the mix
- Does not harden the water
- Available in containers of 2 kg
All WIOdecor sand types are pre-washed. Nevertheless, the manufacturer recommends briefly rinsing the sand with cold water before use to wash off any abrasion caused by transport. This also helps to prevent grains of sand from floating up when filling the aquarium.
