BLAU Terra Activa Soil Brown


BLAU terra active soil brown is an active substrate that naturally lowers the pH value (will be lowered to 5.5 – 6.5 depending on the parameters of the water you use) and water hardness (below 2).


As the pH remains stable using the terra active soil, optimal conditions are created for softwater plant and animals like Caridina shrimp.


Creates optimal conditions for the rooting and growth of aquatic plants.
Perfect living & breeding conditions for freshwater shrimp.
Recommended for fish that need mildly acidic water.
Creates slightly acidic water conditions, optimum for plants and aquatic animals.
Does not release ammonia into the water, avoiding algae outbreaks.
Decreases water hardness (KH).
Long-lasting granule maintains their quality longer and does not break.
Provides essential plant nutrients for a long period of time.
Crystal clear water due to its ability to capture and retain water colloidal particles.

Instructions for use:

Do not rinse before use.
Spread the substrate evenly, or create your desired layout.
Fill the aquarium with water carefully and slowly. Note: In order to avoid stirring the substrate when filling the aquarium it is recommendable to use a small plate or something comparable to break the water stream.

Hints and tips:

Blau terra activa soil is also suitable in combination with under gravel filters.
Do not use it if you plan on keeping fish that like to dig or burrow in the ground. With fish like that, permanently turbid water might be the result.
Not suitable for fish, shrimps, or plants that need a high (>7) pH.
A slight turbidity of the water after setting up the aquarium is normal and will be filtered out shortly after the setup is complete.
A few hours after the setup is complete the water will become crystal clear.
Keep the bag closed, and prevent the substrate from drying out.
