Grow healthier, more vibrant plant life in your freshwater aquarium with Activ-Flora Planted Aquarium Substrate. This Bio-Activ, nutrient-enriched gravel contains a wide variety of essential minerals to help your aquatic plants thrive and achieve optimum growth more quickly. It’s also rich in iron, so you won’t need to add laterite, and it contains no artificial dyes or additives. Thanks to its vast reserve of micronutrients that are slow-released over time, Activ-Flora substrate is indefinitely self-sustaining. As an added benefit, live heterotrophic bacteria provides instant cycling to help remove harmful nitrogenous waste immediately without altering your pH.

For new setups, empty contents of bag into aquarium and fill with de-chlorinated tap water or distilled water. Activ-Flora will automatically bi-segment into two layers with finer grade substrate on the bottom.

If adding to an existing system, drain liquid prior to introducing new substrate and add slowly, while mixing.

Activ-Flora Planted Aquarium Substrate is pre-washed by a nutri-stabilizing process to preserve abundant trace elements and reduce cloudiness when introduced to an aquarium. Cloudiness can be further minimized by filling tank at a slow rate so that the Activ-Flora base is not disturbed. Slight initial cloudiness is normal and will clear rapidly (1–6 hours).

Plants must be placed in substrate with roots as deep as possible. Stabilize with rocks, wood or other decorative medium. This bag is sufficient for about a 5 cm (2 inches) deep bed in a typical 40 L (10 gallon) tank.

Recommended use is 1 kg (2 lbs) for approximately each 200 cm (31 inches) of tank bottom at a depth of 5 cm (2 inches).
