Yellow color tone Malaya creates an aquascape of natural atmosphere. Its soft granules are suitable for the aquarium layout for maintaining for a long period.
A high pH level (alkaline) of the substrate causes difficulties for aquatic plants in consuming nutrients. The Aqua Soil Series decreases the hardness of the water and lowers the PH level to the degree at which most aquatic plants can consume nutrients and comfortably grow. Aqua Soil granules maintain their shape and density for long periods underwater securing good circulation of water and oxygen through the substrate. With Aqua Soil, growing difficult plants such as Tonina sp. becomes easier, and it is ideal for fishes demanding soft water. Of all the Aqua Soil types, including Amazonia II, Aqua Soil Amazonia receives our highest recommendation for best plant growth and long term management.
Designed to create the image of Amazonia. Create an aquascape depicting the fertile South American rainforest with the dynamic alternation of rainy and dry seasons. Normal and Powder Type available.
Dennerle Crystal Quartz Gravel. Perfect bio-functionality and highly attractive as well.
Rounded grains protect bottom-dwelling fish.
ADA substrate additives are to be sprinkled on the bottom of the substrate layer, or on top of ADA Power Sand. These additives help to make a stable and healthy substrate in a newly freshwater planted aquarium setup.
Special re-packaging (different from picture shown) in pre-mixed set specifically designed for 1.5 - 2 ft freshwater planted aquarium setup comprised the following special formula:
AQUASHRIMP POWDER has been selected by Prodibio among numerous mineral compositions. Its balanced formula will allow healthy plant
growth and strong root development. AQUASHRIMP POWDER is ideal for shrimps and young shrimps. It is ready to use and does not need to be
rinsed. A high temperature treatment (around 1200°C/2192°F) gives AQUASHRIMP POWDER its physical properties and allows it to be free of
parasitic species which could contaminate the aquarium. The powder texture of AQUASRIMP SOIL is thin enough to avoid shrimp eggs to fall in
the soil, while allowing plants to grow their roots properly and porous enough to allow nitrifying bacteria to properly colonize the substrate
and properly improve the water quality.
AQUASHRIMP POWDER is ready to use. It is not necessary to rinse it. A 3 liter/3 Kg (0.75 GAL/105.82 oz) bag is suitable for a 20 liter (5 Gal)
aquarium. This will allow a soil thickness of around 5 cm (2 inches). Using 150 g (5.29 oz) of soil per liter (0.25 Gal) will grant the aquarium the best
soil quantity needed.
1. a). Pour a height of approximately 1 cm (0.4 inch) of dechlorinated water in the aquarium. b). Optional: if the substrate additive BACTERKIT
SOIL from Prodibio is used, mix it in the water.
2. a). If the aquarium is not going to be planted, or lightly planted, directly add the quantity of AQUASHRIMP POWDER needed. At this stage,
AQUASHRIMP POWDER will absorb all the water. b). Optional: If the aquarium is going to host a lot of plants, first add a layer of AQUAGROWTH
SOIL as per instructions. AQUAGROWTH SOIL has a granule size better suited for fixation and development of plant roots. On top of the
AQUAGROWTH SOIL, add around 2 to 3 cm (0.8 to 1.1 inches) of AQUASHRIMP POWDER in order to cover AQUAGROWTH SOIL layer. This will
avoid having shrimp eggs and young shrimps to be trapped in the soil, and will help them to stay at the surface of the AQUASHRIMP POWDER.
At this stage, the soils will absorb all the water.
3. Add the main decoration elements (stones, aquatic woods, etc…) and install the aquatic layout as desired.
4. a). Add more water gently to avoid creating holes in the substrate and breaking the aquarium design until the soil surface has been covered
in water. b). Optional: in case of a planted aquarium, add plants and continue to set up the aquarium decoration until everything looks as
5. Gently fill up the aquarium with more dechlorinated water. Floating of soil fragments may occur, remove them this happens. Water may
become cloudy once the aquarium has been fully filled. Cloudiness will naturally disappear after a few hours or especially when the filtration
system has been running. If cloudiness remains, drain part of the water and refill the aquarium with clean dechlorinated water.
