Pro Shrimp's comment: GlasGarten Environment Soil is an active substrate that lowers your water to a PH between 5.5 and 6.5 (depending on source water). In colour and attributes it is very similar to Red Bee Sand and has become very popular among keepers over the last years. Just as RBS it is produced in Japan.

PLEASE NOTE: in some circumstances Environment can buffer the water below a PH of 6. This is fine for Crystal and Taiwan Bee shrimp. If you should wish to keep Neocaridina shrimp this PH might be a bit too low. In such a case we would suggest to use Shirakura Red Bee Sand, which is very similar, but buffers slightly higher.

Environment Aquarium Soil is an active substrate consisting of various fired and sterilised earths that was especially developed for aquarium use. It naturally lowers and stabilises the pH (depending on the parameters of the water you use, the pH will be lowered to 5.5 to 6.5) as well as water hardness and thus creates optimal conditions for softwater plants and animals in your tank.

The special properties of Environment Aquarium Soil make your water crystal clear. This soil is rich in natural nutrients providing your plants and mosses with everything they need to grow healthily and to develop lush colours. The fulvic acids contained in this substrate help create an optimal environment for plants, animals and microorganisms from day one.

Instructions of use

• Do not rinse before use
• Spread the substrate evenly, or create your individual layout
• Fill in water carefully and slowly

Note: In order to avoid upsetting the substrate when filling in water it is recommendable to use a small plate or something comparable to break the water stream

Hints and tips

• Environment Aquarium Soil is also suitable for use with undergravel filters
• The Powder Type is not suitable for this due to the small grain size
• Do not use if you plan on keeping fish that like to dig or burrow in the ground
• On fish like that, permanently turbid water might be the result
• Not suitable for fish, shrimps or plants that need a high pH
• A slight turbidity of the water after setting up the aquarium will cease after a short
time given that the filter works properly, and the water will be crystal clear afterwards
• Keep the bag closed, prevent the substrate from drying out
