ADA Aqua Soil is the original Nature Aquarium substrate, and is used by professional aquascaper James Findley in many of his Nature Aquarium Layouts.  Designed and used by the late master pro aquascaper Takashi Amano for his company Aqua Design Amano. 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 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. We are not just a website: we have a real shop full of Nature Aquarium displays, so we can offer you truly expert advice.

    The best available but in a powder form
    Ideal for those plants with a smaller root system such as Haigrass,Hemianthus etc
    Also very good for use in smaller tanks of 60 litres and less as the smaller grains improve the perception of scale

    I am currently in the middle of aquascaping a juwel 350, and this soil has received some of the best reviews around. Really impressed with the stuff, only real complaint is that I need more of it to get the depth I need as I was probably being a bit enthusiastic with three bags. So will be ordering another three bags of the larger grain ADA. Really looking forwards to ordering some of the dosing mixes and the plants, I have a list and everything 🙂
