New Tanks: Sprinkle Iron Sand Concentrate evenly into a thin layer over the bottom of aquarium. Any areas intended for planting, build up to double depth. Cover with your substrate of choice, for example river gravel, pebble or sand.
Established Tank: Option for replanting – dig a recess in your substrate and carefully fill with Iron Sand Concentrate and cover. Plant into it. Option for general mineralisation – push aside a small area of substrate and place Iron Sand Concentrate. Cover with substrate.
This is iron, it will stick to your impeller. For established tanks, leave the filter off for several hours after first use to allow particles to settle. If impeller becomes blocked or flow decreases, promptly clean the impeller to remove sand.
