key features

    • Encourages strong plant growth - roots easily penetrate and spread throughout substrate to obtain key nutrients 
    • Porous structure allows for rapid colonization of beneficial nitrifying bacteria
    • Helps support neutral to slightly acidic pH - ideal for most plants, tropical fish and shrimp normally kept in planted aquariums 
    • Provides newborn shrimp with a refuge from predators until they are large enough to emerge
    • Will not discolor water and helps control organic discoloration when natural driftwood is present
    • For use in freshwater aquariums
