  • 1mm granule size allows for development of stronger roots while keeping them sufficiently oxygenated 
  • Natural volcanic substrate with extremely beneficial properties for aquatic plant growth 
  • Ideal for use as a substrate in shrimp biotope aquaria and all aquariums with live plants
  • Used as a primary substrate, forms the basis of a stable growth medium for rooted aquatic plants by:
    1. Permitting development of strong root systems.
    2. Encouraging nutrient-uptake through roots via increased interstitial water circulation (relative to higher-density substrata) and acidic pH environment.
    3. Allowing roots to remain sufficiently oxygenated to maintain plant health
