Soil and Substrate

Home > Soil and Substrate

Aquarium Substrates are used to promote healthy plant growth. It's important to get things right from the start, and this means starting with a nutritious substrate. We've tried and testing all our substrates and soil, so we know they do the trick!
For an all-in-one bottom layer we recommend Tropica Aquarium Soil, Dennerle Scaper's Soil or ADA Soil. These are complete bottom layers and do not require capping with gravel.
Tropica Plant Growth Substrate is designed for laying under your chosen gravel/substrate. The choice of which to use is simply down to personal preference.
Substrate additives are used to promote a healthy substrate environment, perfect if you want the best start possible.
