Aqua Soil

ADA soil
ADA Aqua Soil is one of the best substrates available for planted tanks. It helps to decrease the hardness of the water and lower the pH levels to the degree at which most aquatic plants can absorb nutrients and comfortably grow. The substrate is heat treated to form soft slightly moist granules that are optimal for the fast development of healthy plants rot system. The Aqua Soil granules maintain their shape and density for a long time securing good circulation of water and oxygen through the substrate, preventing occurrence of anaerobic pockets. The size of the granules makes planting in the substrate very easy (we recommend use tweezers for planting). The soil makes growing difficult plants easy and it is ideal for fish requiring soft water.
The Aqua Soil is available in three colours: New Amazonia, Malaya, Africana and two types: Normal and Powder. The Powder type is recommended for small aquariums or for spreading lightly over the Normal type.

New Amazonia has the highest nutrient and organic content. Plants will grow the fastest in this soil but be prepared for more maintenance with this soil.

Malaya has a medium amount of nutrients (between New Amazonia and Africana) and it will reduce pH level of the water the most. This substrate is the best for plants that do not need constant replanting such as Cryptocoryne.

Africana has the least amount of nutrients. Regular fertilization will be required but the tank will not require too much maintenance. The soil ability to reduce the pH level is between New Amazonia and Malaya. It contains adequate level of nitrogen suited for Wabi-kusa.

Use this Aquasoil calculator to determine the number of Aquasoil bags needed for a specific aquarium.
