AQUARIO Neo Soil Compact Plants 3Ltr
by AQUARIO is an innovative substrate especially for plant aquariums which focusses on optimising the starting (cycling) phase of an aquarium without the need of external fertilisers. This effect is reached by an immediate activation of the soil at the very bottom, which helps root formation and prevents algae growth from the beginning.

It consists of nutrient-rich soils of volcanic origin and creates the perfect growth conditions for tropical aquarium plants. Furthermore, it is completely harmless to fish and shrimps.

In addition to the ability of lowering the pH-value as well as the water hardness, which many soils provide and is surely not neglected with this soil, Neo Soil does have more features that make it unique. Other than most soils, the Neo Soil includes bacteria that are activated as soon as the soil makes contact with water. These beneficial bacteria in the soil play an important role in biological degradation processes in the aquarium.
They convert undesirable substances such as nitrite and additionally limit the growth of harmful organisms abundant in the water. The soil already contains sufficient nutrients to allow the bacteria’s qick and stable establishment in the tank. Since the bacteria also provide the plants with nutrients (especially NO3) that are present in the soil, growth is accelerated and facilitated in the critical starting phase. This leaves almost no room for unwanted algae to grow.

The soil has a special structural composition of the soil particles which combines two layers of different natural soil types – brown soil inside and black soil outside. Therefore, it has a lower weight and its very own filtering effect. It adsorbs soilings and, thus, keeps the water clean.
Additionally, microscopically small pores in the beads cause an increase in surface area and thus the habitat for additional important bacteria.
Through these very special filtration features combined with the immediate activation of bacteria and promt provision of nutrients, an aquarium needs significantly less external fertiliser when started with AQUARIO Neo Soil Compact Plant. Tests have shown these results. All these incredible characteristics make AQUARIO Neo Soil Compact Plant the ideal Soil for beginners in the hobby and for the creation of tanks with very demanding carpeting plants.
