    Malaya is the substrate material produced with an image of ocher color soil in Southeast Asia. It promotes a natural feeling of the aquascape. Relatively soft granules do not obstruct the growth of plant roots, and it is suitable for keeping the aquarium layout for a long period.

    Create a sanctuary left intact only in the deep jungles of Southeast Asia. Excellent substrate for a layout with aquatic plants like Cryptocoryne, Eleocharis or Blyxa.


    • Completely new substrate made from specially processed natural material from the earth
    • Colloid particles capture dirt floating in the water, without any chemical treatment
    • Gives clarity to the water and creates conditions ideal for healthy growth of aquatic plants
    • Helps to lower the hardness level of the water
    • Helps to bring the pH level of the water down to an ideal level for most of the aquatic plants
    • Composed of granules of size and density ideal for the fast development of healthy plant root systems, rather conventional substrates such as sand
    • Granules maintain their shape for a long period in water, holding air between them, which is vital for the long time maintenance of a planted aquarium
    • Used with Power Sand stimulates the fast colonization of bacteria in the substrate and creates perfect conditions for plant root systems
    • Most desirable pH level for most aquatic plants(ph 5.5 - 6.5) to develop their root systems

    The best value ADA substrate I have been able to purchase. Even with shipping to the UK, Aqusabi still comes through top on price.
