Black Earth Premium Normal 9 Litre
CAL AQUA LABS’ developed Black Earth Premium from the ground up and is the result of years of cumulative research and testing. The end result is a highly-advanced, highly-fertile substrate that does not leach harmful ammonia into the water column.
Black Earth Premium does not release ammonia. Fertile substrates tend to leach high levels of ammonia into the water column during the initial weeks of setup. This may be harmful to sensitive inhabitants, making users wait for long periods of time before safely introducing aquatic fauna into their fish tank. Although Black Earth Premium is highly-fertile and rich in organic nutrients, the advanced production process locks the ammonia inside the substrate. This assures that most of the nutrients remain within the substrate for the plants, and not washed away by water. As a result, the substrate remains fertile for longer. This also makes your aquarium less prone to algae outbreaks, as well as keeps your fish and aquatic life safe and eliminates long cycle times.
Natural granules that extend substrate lifetime plus better preserved nutrients!
CAL AQUA LABS has developed an advanced process for the production of Black Earth Premium that results in cohesive granules that are not brittle under prolonged submergence. As a result, they suffer significantly less brittle fractures and prolong the lifetime of the substrate.
Polished, crystal clear water- Special ingredients blended into Black Earth Premium have the ability to capture and bind small colloidal particles in water. As a result, the substrate doubles as another biological and mechanical filtration unit with massive surface area. This results in amazingly polished, crystal clear water.
High density granules- The Black Earth Premium formula creates granules with higher density. This translates to the granules holding down plants better.
Creates slightly acidic water conditions- Black Earth Premium is made from natural, highly-fertile earth which is rich in humic and fulvic acids. As a result, it creates slightly acidic water conditions which is optimal for keeping aquatic plants and most freshwater fish.
Sizing: Black Earth Premium is available in 9-liter bags. With two granule sizes to choose from: Normal and Extra Fine.
1. DO NOT wash or rinse before use. Pour Black Earth directly onto the bottom of the aquarium. The substrate layer should be at least 1-2 inches thick to allow plant roots to fully grow
2. Place and arrange decorative rocks and driftwood
3. Carefully add water. To fill the aquarium with water, first place a large plastic bag or newspaper on the soil surface to prevent water from impacting and stirring up the substrate. Slowly add water and take care not to disturb the substrate layer. Planting can be easily done when water is slightly above the substrate level.
4. Install proper filtration equipment and allow the tank to equilibrate. Make sure the filter outflow does not point directly at the soil to avoid disturbing the substrate layer.
Note: For freshwater aquarium use only. Keep away from children. Store unused soil in a cool, dry place away from direct sunlight and moisture. Size: 9 Litre Normal
