Informações sobre o produto

Underwater gardener
Aquascaping is the term used to describe the technique of designing aquarium landscapes. This is the place for plant compositions, for the reproduction of a landscape above water or for natural biotopes. An aquascaping aquarium contains no or few fish and invertebrates. This way the nutrient supply for plants is reduced and their growth is limited. Nitrogens, phosphorus and other minerals become scarce substances and need precise re-dosing. The plants need light for their healthy growth in a beautiful underwater landscape, CO2 and the right nutrients.

Rich in minerals
ProScape soils are dedicated substrates which have been especially adapted to the requirements of the aquascapers. Soils are not neutral to water but have a softening effect. They make the water softer and acidify the water just enough to slide the pH value slightly into the acidic range. The JBL plant soils are rich in nutrients and supply the plants with both nutrients and minerals, whereas ShrimpsSoils are lower in nutrients.

Use:
Rinse the substrate briefly under tap water to wash away any abrasion caused in transport. To avoid accumulation of minerals in the water, carry out a 50 % water change every 2 to 3 days in the first two weeks after filling. The softening effect decreases in the course of time because the influence of the water values depend on the input water values and the intervals between the water changes.

Calculation formula for the right amount of substrate: length (cm) x width (cm) x height (cm) : 1000 = litre JBL ProScape Plant Soil

FAQ
How long can the soil lower the pH value in the aquarium?

It is not possible to make a general statement about the maximum time period of the pH decreasing effect of a soil. The softening and pH value reducing effect depends, among other factors, on:

a) the quantity of the soil based on the volume,
b) the input water values, especially the carbonate hardness,
c) the frequency and quantity of the water changes which were carried out.
