Collected from the mineral-rich foothills of Mount Aso Volcano in Japan, Fluval Stratum makes an ideal alternative substrate for planted aquariums and those featuring shrimp.

  • 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

Recommended depth : 1.18 – 1.57 in (3-4 cm)

    I am sure hopeing I got enough of this for my 20 gallon tank, but only bought 4.4 Lbs I did not follow instructions but cut the top off the bag, filled with water and dumped it on the bottom. It was cloudy after I spread it out but in a few hours it was chrystal clear.
