    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.


    GlasGarten stands for aquaristics with a passion. In the aquascaping hobby, the low-iron glass tanks made by GlasGarten have long gained a lot of popularity, and their soil substrate has also earned a very good reputation with aquascapers, shrimp breeders and planted tank enthusiasts. The new food line as well as the water additives sold by GlasGarten are of the same high quality as the other products of this brand. They can be used in tanks dedicated to shrimp breeding and shrimp keeping as well as in aquascapes and planted tanks in general.

    Anfangs habe ich mich vor dem Einsatz von Soils gesträubt. Ein Bodengrund der Wasserwerte verändert, massiv vorgedüngt ist, wochenlange Einlaufzeit benötigt? Nein danke! (mehr lesen)
