1 pack - for aquariums from 0 to 60 liters

Its balanced formula allows plants to grow healthily and develop strong roots. AQUAGROWTH SOIL is ready for use and does not require rinsing. The physical properties of AQUAGROWTH SOIL are due to a high temperature treatment (about 1,200 ° C, 2192 ° F), which makes it free from parasitic species that could contaminate the aquarium. Each AQUAGROWTH SOIL granule, 1-3mm in size, is compact enough not to pulverize while allowing plants to grow their roots properly. Furthermore, AQUAGROWTH SOIL is porous enough to allow nitrifying bacteria to properly colonize the substrate and improve water quality.


AQUAGROWTH SOIL is ready for use. No rinsing is necessary. A 9 liter / kg pack is sufficient for a 60 liter aquarium. This will allow the plants to grow in soil with a thickness of 5 - 6 cm. The use of 150g of soil for each liter will ensure the necessary amount of soil for the aquarium.

1.a). Pour about 1 cm of dechlorinated water into the aquarium

b). Optional: If using Prodibio's BACTERKIT SOIL Substrate Additive, mix it into the water.

2.a). Add the required quantity of AQUAGROWTH SOIL directly in 1 cm of water. Due to its porosity, AQUAGROWTH SOIL will completely absorb this amount of water. Install the desired aquatic layout. It is advisable to create raised ground from the back to the front of the aquarium.

b) Optional: if the aquarium will host shrimps, add AQUASHRIMP POWDER on top of AQUAGROWTH SOIL. The floury texture of AQUASHRIMP POWDER will allow the shrimp to spawn and keep them on the substrate surface. Otherwise, they would get trapped between the AQUAGROWTH SOIL granules and the juvenile shrimps would have difficulty climbing up and reaching the substrate surface.

3. Add the main decorative elements (stones, aquatic plants, etc.…) and install the desired layout.

4. Slowly add more water to avoid making holes in the substrate and breaking the aquarium design until the soil surface is covered with water.

5.Add plants and continue to install the aquarium decoration until the desired result is achieved. 6. Gently fill the aquarium with more dechlorinated water. If floating debris is observed, remove them. The water may go numb once the aquarium is filled. This effect will naturally disappear after a few hours, especially when the filtration system is activated. If the water remains cloudy, drain some of the water and fill the aquarium with clean dechlorinated water.

7. Start the aquarium and carefully introduce the fish and shrimp after using the Prodibio range of water treatments for freshwater aquariums. CHLORAL RESET removes chlorine and chloramine from tap water; START UP activates the nitrogen cycle before introducing the fish and shrimps; regular addition of BIOCLEAN FRESH maintains the quality of the water; BIOVERT fertilizes plants (safe for shrimps) and BIOKIT FRESH combines BIOCLEAN FRESH and BIOVERT in a single package
