Aquarium Soil by Tropica is a soil (substrate) that can be used without any other substrate additives. Aquarium Soil is an active substrate that lowers the pH and has a slight influence on the water chemistry. For this reason, Tropica recommends at least two water changes of 25 to 50 % per week during the first four weeks after the aquarium is set up.
The Powder variant of the Aquarium Soil is especially suited for the use as uppermost layer for a fine finish on plantless areas or in areas where short-rooted ground-covering plants are used (like Hemianthus callitrichoides), or as complete substrate for small aquaria. Fine, tender plants can be planted much better, and their tiny roots will get a much firmer hold in the Powder type. In our opinion, nano tanks look much better with a very fine-grained soil.
Also great for the use in shrimp tanks
Its pH lowering properties make Tropica Aquarium Soil a great substrate for keeping and breeding shrimp that need soft water, like Bee shrimp for example.
