HELP shrimp soil is a black pH/KH lowering soil, with a grain size of 1-4mm. These grains are made from clay/earth and burned twice. This means that they last a very long time and keep their solid shape.
The soil lowers and stabilizes the pH on approximately 6.0 and is therefore ideal for shrimps and fish that feel comfortable in soft and acidic water. This soil is ideal to mimic the natural environment. The vitality of the shrimp will be supported by the added natural acids.
Due to the pH drop to +- 6.0, the water can absorb more CO2. This is beneficial for aquarium plants in the aquarium and ensures good colors and good-looking plants. Because of the porous surface of the grain, there are many good bacteria which can live in the soil, which improves the water quality. This Multi grain has a very natural appearance and provides crystal clear water in a short time. This soil is also very suitable for use in combination with a bottom filter.
Use: Do not wash the soil before use. It can be used immediately.
