    Ideal substrates for the professional care of plants and shrimps. Proscapers often use special substrates (soils), which have been especially adapted to their requirements. Unlike "normal" substrates (sand, gravel), soils are not water- neutral, but have a softening effect. They make the water softer and acidify the aquarium just enough to slide the pH value slightly into the acidic range. The JBL plant soils are rich in nutrients and supply the plants with both nutrients and minerals, whereas the shrimp soils are free of nutrients.

    JBL - ProScape - Volcano Mineral is a chopped highly porous volcanic rock, recommended as first layer of the aquarium substrate.


    • Highly porous volcanic rock. JBL ProScape Volcano is ideally suitable as a basis for every natural aquarium. The porous volcanic rock ensures the water circulation at the bottom and also helps supply organic plant nutrients to the plant roots.
    • Promotes the settlement of microorganisms. With its open-pored structure JBL ProScape Volcano ensures an optimal oxygen supply to the bottom of the aquarium. This encourages microorganisms to settle, making the substrate an efficient biotope.
    • Rich in valuable minerals and trace elements. JBL ProScape Volcano is rich in minerals like calcium, magnesium and potassium as well as in trace elements like iron, boron or manganese. It is thus a natural supply of many substances necessary for plant growth.


    Depending on the height of the substrate, we recommend 2-4 cm JBL ProScape Volcano for the first layer. JBL ProScape Volcano can then be covered with your chosen substrate. Please add the water gently to avoid unsettling the soil.

    JBL ProScape Volcano is not intended to be used in combination with JBL Sansibar.

    Very good product ! I use it as the base layer to create hills in my 450 L.

    Put ADA Bacter on it and covered it with Tropica Aquarium Soil and Aquarium Soil Powder.
