AquaSoil is available in 3 varieties; Amazonia



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 recommend 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. We are not just a website: we have a real shop full of Nature Aquarium displays, so we can offer you truly expert advice. For more help and assistance please contact us now. We have helped thousands of people learn to aquascape… and we are still counting! Or find out a little bit more about us by reading The Green Machine Experience.
