Tonga Fine Quartz Aquarium Sand is a popular substrate for planted aquariums due to its aesthetic appeal and functionality. It is a natural colored sand that is made up of small, rounded grains of quartz. This type of sand is pH-neutral and inert, meaning it won't alter the chemistry of the water, making it safe to use for all types of aquariums.

In a planted aquarium, Tonga Fine Quartz Aquarium Sand provides a stable base for plant roots to anchor and grow. Its small grain size ensures that plant roots can penetrate it easily, allowing for efficient nutrient uptake providing there is a nutrient rich base below the gravel. It also provides a natural look to the aquarium and enhances the color and appearance of aquatic plants.

Additionally, Tonga Fine Quartz Aquarium Sand helps to maintain a clean and healthy environment for aquarium inhabitants. It is easy to clean and doesn't trap waste or debris, making it easier to maintain a healthy aquarium. It also doesn't release harmful chemicals into the water, ensuring a safe and healthy environment for fish and shrimp.

Overall, Tonga Fine Quartz Aquarium Sand is an excellent choice for a planted aquarium. Its natural, pH-neutral properties and small grain size make it a great substrate for growing aquarium plants with a nutrient rich substrate below it. Its ease of maintenance and ability to promote a healthy aquarium make it a popular choice among aquarium hobbyists.

Your plants will be wrapped with recyclable Honey Comb wrap - sounds cool because it is :). It interlocks which means we don't need to use tape either, reducing our impact on the environment.

Not only is delivery fast with DPD Express but it's also green as they offset all the carbon their vehicles produce. Guilt free delivery which we're very proud of...

We guarantee you'll be happy with your order. But if you're not, please contact us so we can resolve. We are 100% here to help and will always do our best to resolve any issues - that's a promise.
