AQUARIO Neo Soil Compact Plants Powder 3Ltr
Neo Soil Compact Plants Powder by AQUARIO is a special substrate especially for plant aquariums. The powder type of the soil with a grain size of 1 mm is much finer than its more coarse 3 mm version, giving the substrate a harmonious and natural appearance.
Due to its finer structure, the Powder Soil is particularly suitable for use in nano aquariums and also simplifies the placing of aquatic plants.
AQUARIO Neo Soil Compact Plants Powder consists of nutrient-rich soils of volcanic origin. It creates the perfect growth conditions for tropical aquarium plants and is completely harmless to fish and shrimps. Due to the special structural composition of the soil particles, which combines two layers of different natural soil types – brown soil inside and black soil outside – the soil has a lower weight and its own filtering effect. It adsorbs soilings and thus, keeping the water clean.

In addition to the ability of lowering the pH-value as well as the water hardness, this soil also includes abilities 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 by converting undesirable substances such as nitrite and additionally limiting the growth of harmful organisms abundant in the water. The soil already contains sufficient nutrients to allow the bacteria to establish quickly and stably in the tank. Since the bacteria also provide the plants with nutrients that are present in the soil, growth is accelerated and facilitated in the critical starting phase. Additionally, microscopically small pores in the beads cause an increase in surface area and thus the habitat for additional important bacteria.
