    Aquarium Soil is used for planning a new aquarium. It is a complete bottom layer, which can be used without any other types of bottom layer – see how to use it here.

    • Aquarium Soil is a complete bottom layer, which can be used without any other types of bottom layer
    • The grain size of 2 mm makes it easy for planting
    • Aquarium Soil ensures proper growth and stimulates red colours

    How to use the product

    Aquarium Soil ensures good and active growth from the beginning, and boosts the red plant shades. It is a complete substrate, which can be used without any other types of bottom layer.

    Aquarium Soil is further an active bottom layer that lowers the pH value and slightly affects the water chemistry.
    We recommend that you change 25-50% of the water min. twice a week during the first 4 weeks after establishing the aquarium.

    How do I calculate the quantity of Soil or Soil Powder needed for my tank?

    • Measure your tank’s length and width in cm, for example 90 x 60 cm.
    • Consider the thickness of the bottom layer you want, e.g. 8 cm.
      Make the layer thicker towards the rear wall for a great visual effect!
    • The calculation to do is length x width x layer divided by 1000.

    In our example, 90 x 60 x 8/1000 = 43,2 L Soil/Soil Powder needed

    Great product, easy to plant into, didn't seem to mess the water. The plants look great and so does the final look of the tank, definitely worth the money

    Does tend to get moved around because of the flow from the circulation pumps.

    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.
