Inferno Sand from the WIOdecor-Sands series by the manufacturer WIO is a decorative dark-reddish substrate with a slightly variable grain size between 0,1 - 2 mm.
The natural red colour of this sand makes it ideal for biotope aquariums that recreate a lake, river, pond or stream environment of the Amazon, West Africa or the tropics of Asia. The look is very similar to the mud deposits in natural waters. The sand matches Soil very well and has the potential to create an optical depth, to emphasise contrasts or to set numerous colour accents in the aquarium. The sand is also particularly effective in an aquascape, especially in combination with light green plants.

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.
- Reddish colour nuances
- Natural quartz sand
- Grain size from 0,1 to max. 2 mm in the mix
- Does not harden the water
- Available in containers of 2 and 5 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.
