JAPANESE ACTIVE TROPICAL SOIL
For healthy and full growth, the plant roots needs a porous and soft sub-strata. E’quo, after various studies and research, has selected a tropical soil which gives the aquarium the optimal physical characteristics for root growth. TERRANERA also contains numerous micro and macro nutrients. Thanks to the extremely high capacity for exchange it is able to absorb the various cations from the water, including: Potassium, Magnesium, Calcium, Ammonia and others, slowly releasing these to the plant roots, therefore favouring a healthy and rigorous growth.
It can be used alone or used in conjunction with substrate VIGOR e/o VIGOR PLUS.
After having covered the bottom of the aquarium with the fertilizing substrata VIGOR, spread TERRANERA soil in order to have a bed of at least 4/6cm at the front of the tank and 8/10cm at the back. Cover all with a sheet of foil and pour in water slowly in order to avoid that the two layers mix. As TERRANERA absorbs a fraction of dissolved salts in the water (KH and GH) during the first month, it is good practice to verify the saline concentration during this period. If necessary supplement with STABILO KH+ and INTEGRA GH+.
TERRANERA FINE: 1 – 2 mm
