Have I caught your attention yet?
I hope so because this IS important. Getting the substrate right first time round will really save you a whole heap of hassle and stress, but it does mean you have to be organised. The reason for this is that the substrate has to be the first thing you put in your tank (and always before water). But I'm not talking about any old substrate, I'm talking about Colombo Flora-Base.
This is by far the best substrate for 3 reasons:
- It sets your parameters to be exactly what your plants need. It drops your KH, GH and pH so that your plants love the conditions it provides. You don't need to do anything else to the water.
- It doesn't need topping which means no other gravels or substrates are needed - so it's 100% ready to go.
- It grows your plants AMAZINGLY well. Better than any other substrate I have used.
This is the number 1 substrate I recommend for all customers and if you want to get the best from your plants then this is the choice for you. Available in 3 different sizes and 2 colours, black and brown.
