Only CaribSea's Arag-Alive! Live Sands contains not just the broad spectrum of marine bacteria found in the ocean, but additional specially selected strains of marine bacteria as well. Arag-Alive! compresses new tank cycle time and suppresses the initial ammonia spike. Arag-Alive! creates a natural biological balance, and makes cycling a new aquarium faster and safer. Live rocks and most invertebrates can be added immediately. Gradually introduce fish within the first 3 weeks, and do not exceed one inch of fish per 5 gallons during this time.
Bahamas Oolite - This oolitic sand is ideal for shallower beds, allowing denitrification in as little as 1 depth. The most friendly to bottom dwelling creatures; its fine grain size can pass easily through the gills of gobys and other sand sifting organisms. Also an excellent choice for the cultivation of seagrasses (true plants) such as Thallasia species. Gentle to sharks and rays. Grain size 0.1 - 1.0 mm.
$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
