NEO Plant 8l Black Aquarium Soil by AQUARIO is an innovative substrate, especially for plant aquariums which focuses on optimizing the starting (cycling) phase of an aquarium without the need for external fertilizers. This effect is reached by 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 shrimp.
In addition to the ability to lower 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 quick 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.
