AquaGrowth Soil Informations

  • Enriched soil for fresh water aquarium
  • Ideal for an healthy plant growth and strong root development
  • High temperature treatment (around 1200°C; 2192°F) gives its physical properties and allows it to be free of parasitic species which could contaminate the aquarium
  • AquaGrowth Soil is porous enough to allow nitrifying bacteria to properly colonize the substrate and improve water quality
  • Each granule of AquaGrowth Soil, with a size of 1 to 3mm, is compact enough to not turn into powder.
  • AquaGrowth Soil is tested by an independent laboratory (microbiological, chemical, and radioactive tests)

How to use AquaGrowth Soil ?

  • A bag is packaged in 9 liters / 9kg corresponding to a thickness of 5 to 6 cm for a 60 liter aquarium.
  • Using 150g (5.29 Oz.) of soil per liter (0.25 Gal) will grant the aquarium the best soil quantity needed..
