Platinum AquaSoil - For Shrimp And Planted Tanks 

Japanese Translation: 100% Japanese natural black ash soil. Maintains a soft water environment that is ideal for breeding aquatic plants and freshwater shrimp (especially caridina shrimp) for a long time. The buffering power of the soil can absorb pigment leached by driftwood, the phosphates that lead to algae, etc. is adsorbed by the power of the natural soil. Platinum Soil will give you highly transparent water and good breeding parameters for shrimp.

● Platinum Soil stays intact yet buffers strongly, unlike common aquasoils

● Buffers water to 6.2-6.5, the perfect pH for breeding shrimp

● Strong water clarifying property will buffer water for over a year when using RO

● Active substrate will keep caridina shrimp healthy by removing harmful KH (carbonate ion) from water


Bag Sizes:

8 Liter bag – 16 lbs of substrate

3 Liter bag – 6 lbs of substrate

Grain Sizes:

Normal: Particle size 3.0mm-5.0mm
