Multifunctional aquatic plant substrate supports healthy plant growth and recreates riverine conditions. Brightwell Aquatics FlorinVolcanit Plant Substrate is a beautiful fired volcanic ash base substrate that creates conditions conducive to long-term care of plants, fishes, and invertebrates requiring slightly acidic, low-GH water conditions (i.e. species endemic to most rainforest streams, rivers, and pools). Available in three different particle sizes and two color choices to suit your particular setup. Rio Escuro is a rich black colored substrate and Rio Café is a gorgeous brown colored substrate.

Brightwell Aquatics FlorinVolcanit Plant Substrate boasts beneficial properties for rooted aquarium plants. Oblong bead-shaped substrate resists compaction to maintain increased interstitial space vital for strong root development. This in turn encourages nutrient-uptake through roots and keeps roots sufficiently oxygenated to maintain overall plant health. Brightwell Aquatics FlorinVolcanit Plant Substrate also binds elements that contribute to hardness and gradually lowers aquarium GH and pH, resulting in a slight acidification of alkaline water to a pH of less than 7.

Brightwell Aquatics FlorinVolcanit Plant Substrate is great for use in all planted and freshwater shrimp biotope aquaria. Do not use with under gravel filtration. 5 lbs bag provides approximately 2.4 to 2.6 liters of substrate.
