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.
Big beautiful bag of Tropica soil arrived with our co2 system. We used this in conjunction with GLA root fertilizer and all is fantastic.
I used the 9L bag in a 40-breeder tank (it wasn't enough to use alone but I wanted to use white sand for contrast). It was incredibly easy to plant cryptocoryne (from parva to wendtii) and the plants stayed in without weights. I would definitely use this product again.
GLA has the best price on huge bags of substrate. I got enough to fill my 120-P and topped off with some powder to smooth thing out. Loved GLA's free stickers as well.
