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 bottom layer, which can be used without any other types of bottom layer. Furthermore, Aquarium Soil is an active bottom layer that lowers the pH value and slightly affects the water chemistry in favour of plants.
We recommend that you change the water minimum twice a week during the first 4 weeks after establishing the aquarium.
Customer Notice: We recommend purchasing soils/substrates before purchaing plants to ensure you have enough prior to planting.
