ADA Aqua Soil - Amazonia - Normal 9L

  • 6599


Designed to reproduce the image of the Amazon, create an aquascape depicting the fertile South American rainforest with the dynamic alternation of rainy and dry seasons. Normal and Powder Types are available. AQUA SOIL SERIES A high pH level (alkaline) of the substrate causes difficulties for aquatic plants in consuming nutrients. The Aqua Soil Series decreases the hardness of the water and lowers the PH level to the degree to which most aquatic plants can consume nutrients and comfortably grow. Aqua Soil granules maintain their shape and density for long periods underwater securing good circulation of water and oxygen through the substrate. With Aqua Soil, growing difficult plants such as Tonina sp. becomes easier, and it is ideal for fishes demanding soft water.

How many bags do you need?

  • The general rule of thumb is one 3L bag per 5 gallons or one 9L bag per 15 gallons.
  • One 9L bag will give approximately 4 inches of height in 1 square foot.
  • To determine how many bags you need more accurately, multiply tank length by width by depth.

          For example:

          One 9L bag is equal to 9000 cubic centimeters (approximately 549.21 cubic inches).  In an ADA 60P aquarium with a length of 60cm and a width of 30cm, you want a 5cm depth of soil:  

60cm (length) x 30cm (width) x 5cm (desired depth) = 9000 cubic centimeters = One 9L bag
