The substrate is an important part of the aquarium components because a lot of animals dig in the ground to search for food. The plants also need a safe hold and have to absorb the food in the ground through their roots. Digging fish absolutely need a substrate which is not sharp-edged. Undergravel heating can only be recommended for medium-fine to coarse substrates because water circulation cannot really build up in very fine substrates.
- Perfect hold for plant roots: substrate for freshwater and saltwater aquariums and terrariums
- Vigorous plant growth: prevents the seeping in of sludge and other waste material with its fine granulation and density
- Ideal for fish, invertebrates and plants: no release of unwanted pollutants into the water. Fine, round-shaped granite sand is gentle on sensitive barbels of bottom-dwellers.
- No light reflections – full colouring of plants and fish: easily scared animals feel more comfortable and show their full, natural colouring
Rinse the substrate with tap water to remove any abrasion caused in transit. Put substrate on the nutrient substrate (JBL AquaBasis) to promote the plant growth (for vigorous growth about 6-8 cm).
