Designed to provide a mineral rich and soothing water parameter especially for soft water aquatic shrimps, BORNEOWILD SHRIMP SOIL creates a natural look and practical medium that would be appreciated by experienced breeders and aquarists.
BORNEOWILD SHRIMP SOIL maintains a mild acidity and adequate General Hardness, making it most suitable for keeping of ornamental shrimps such as crystal bee shrimps, cherry shrimps, all other soft water fauna and invertebrates. The soil granules allow good circulation of water and oxygen through the substrate and support the growth of micro-organisms, thus providing an excellent alternative biological media to the eco-system. The abundance of natural minerals essential to shrimp keeping provide a rich soil system for optimal growth and breeding of soft water shrimps.
BORNEOWILD SHRIMP SOIL is able to maintain crystal clear by absorbing impurities and brown tannin coloration released by driftwood. It reduces the presence of ammonia, thus allowing safer and faster introduction of fishes and invertebrates.
BORNEOWILD SHRIMP SOIL is created using a proprietary technique that hold the soil granules together, thus allowing it to not crumble into dust for a much longer period.
$18.00Dymax Base Soil series decreases the hardness of the water and lower the pH level to the degree at which most aquatic plants can consume nutrients and comfortably grow. The soil granules maintain the shape and density underwater security good circulation of water oxygen through the substrate. With Dymax Base Soil, growing difficult plants become easier and it is ideal for fishes demanding soft water.
$25.20Flourite'is a specially fracted, stable porous clay gravel for the natural planted aquarium. Its appearance is best suited to planted aquaria, but may be used in any aquarium environment. Flourite'is most effective when used alone as an integral substrate bed, but it may be mixed with other gravels. Gravel modifiers such as laterite are not necessary and unlike competing products, Flourite'never has to be replaced. It remains effective for the life of the aquarium. Flourite'is not chemically coated or treated and will not alter the pH of the water.
aquasolum™ is a lightweight, porous substrate derived from humate. Humate contains most of the known trace elements necessary for development of plant life because in its original state, it was plant life. Organic humate enhances root development and promotes chelation, a process by which insoluble matter is gradually processed for plant utilization. As a result, humate contains valuable plant nutritional substances not found in chemical fertilizers. Additionally, its tendency to lower pH and soften water makes it ideal for keeping freshwater shrimp.
Sizes: 2 kg (4.4 lbs)
Although it is pre-washed, it may become dusty in transit and require rinsing before use to remove any residual dust. To determine the number of bags required for your aquarium, please note that each bag (2 kg, 4.4 lbs) occupies a volume of approximately 1,630 cm3 (100 cu. in.). To determine your desired volume multiply tank width by length by desired depth.
TIPS: When adding water to aquarium, fill slowly to avoid disturbing aquasolum™ bed. Place a bowl in the aquarium and add water directly to the bowl, allowing water to overflow softly on to the substrate bed. Initial cloudiness is normal. To remove cloudiness, use mechanical filtration (such as filter floss). Use Clarity® to accelerate clearing.
Aqua Soil-Amazonia LIGHT
With its natural earth color, it shows aquascapes visually more natural. It contained the same natural black soil as Amazonia, it sufficiently promotes the growth of aquatic plants
