Scaper's Soil is a tailored substrate designed for aquariums. It produces water that is slightly acidic and soft--similar to what many tropical animals and plants are used to. This substrate is especially suited for aquascaping and shrimp aquariums, as it offers nutrients for enhanced plant growth and contains essential minerals and trace elements. It also acts as a bio-filter for clean and healthy water, and when used with CO2 fertilization, it yields long-lasting water stability. Furthermore, Scaper's Soil boasts valuable humic and fulvic acids, making it ideal for shrimps, fish, and plants that prefer soft, slightly acidic water. It is also perfect for bottom filters, such as those used in shrimp breeding, thanks to its special nutrient formula that does not contribute to algae growth.
