Aqua Soil-Amazonia Aqua Soil - Amazonia is an ideal substrate material for Nature Aquarium. With this product, you can easily re-create a natural environment where aquatic plants grow rapidly and fish and invertebrates live a healthy life.
It contains plenty of organic acids and nutrients which encourage plants root growth, and provides a perfect substrate system for aquatic plants when used with ADA's POWER SAND. The Powder type Aqua Soil is recommended for small aquariums or for spreading lightly over the Normal type Aqua Soil to create an attractive look and make planting of carpeting plants easier.
New Amazonia is an improved Amazonia substrate, which combines positive characteristics of Amazonia I and Amazonia II. It was designed to create the image of Amazonia depicting the fertile South American rainforest with the dynamic alternation of rainy and dry seasons.
New Amazonia is rich in organic substances that makes it ideal for keeping freshwater shrimps in healthy conditions and optimal growth of plants. Its granules are hard to crumble, which prevents water colouring and cloudiness.
Use only a thin layer of Powder type Aqua Soil on top of Normal type Aqua Soil. About 1/2 inch should be sufficient, more than 1 inch will likely cause problems - excessive dust when replanting plants, restricted water circulation through the substrate.
