    Platinum AquaSoil - For Planted Tanks 

    Japanese Translation: 100% Japanese natural black ash soil. Maintains a soft water environment that is ideal for breeding aquatic plants and fish for a long time. The buffering power of the soil can absorb pigment leached by driftwood, the phosphates that lead to algae, etc. is adsorbed by the power of the natural soil. 

    ● Platinum Soil stays intact yet buffers strongly, unlike common aquasoils

    ● Buffers water to 6.2-6.5

    ● Strong water clarifying property will buffer water for over a year when using RO

    ● Active substrate by removing harmful KH (carbonate ion) from water

     

    Bag Sizes:

    8 Liter bag – 16 lbs of substrate

    3 Liter bag – 6 lbs of substrate

    Grain Sizes:

    Normal: Particle size 3.0mm-5.0mm

    Powder: Particle size 1.6mm-3.0mm

    Advice:

    Platinum has a stronger buffer than most soils, with a high concentration of micro, macro elements and potassium.

    For shrimp, it is recommended to use RO water only and prepare the aquarium before adding invertebrates:

    - Week 1: 50% water change every 2 days
    - Week 2: 50% water change every 4 days
    - Week  3: 50% change every 6 days
    - Week 4: 50% water change every 7 days
    - Week 5: Addition of invertebrates

    Nice substrate, doesn't crumble, plants like it

    I used this substrate (both sizes) setting up a standard 29 gallons tank witth CO2. Picture is after 3 weeks. Plants seem to like it a lot. Red plants are very dark, and roots grow quickly. Only downside is that it's rather light, so it's difficult for plants to hold in it for the first days before the roots start growing.
