- Relatively hard granules which are easy to handle, and ensure very clear water.
- Available in: Africana 3l, Africana 9l, Africana Powder Type 3l and Africana Powder Type 9l
- Ocher colour of the natural substrate in South East Asia.
- Ideal for aquarium layouts that are designed to last for a long period.
- Available in: Malaya 3l, Malaya 9l, Malaya Powder Type 3l and Malaya Powder Type 9l
ADA also offer each variety in a Powder Type which has additional benefits:

** Please note that ADA substrates are designed to release ammonia as an aid in cycling new filter media. This is in effect "fishless cycling" and is of great benefit to livestock when they are eventually added to the tank. Because of this livestock should not be added for at least three weeks and we reccomend that a large 70% water change be carried out weekly during this period. Planting will also be easier at this point as plants too do not appreciate high ammonia levels.
