ADA Aqua Soil Amazonia Ver.2

Amazonia Ver.2 is the new variant of the most successful soil substrate "Amazonia". Good soil is vital for healthy growth of aquarium plants. The results with Amazonia Ver.2 are impressive.

Aqua Soil Amazonia Ver.2 is made from 100% natural black earth (the material is different from traditional Amazonia). This product is the ideal basis for a planted aquarium. With the ADA Amazonia Ver.2 there is virtually no clouding in the water during the start-up phase. Something that can sometimes happen with normal Amazonia. This makes this product easier to use and aquarium plants will also grow fantastically. Another important difference is that the grains are slightly smaller. So there is no longer a need for a covering layer of "powder" to allow fine plants to root.

ADA Amazonia Ver.2 is the updated version of Amazonia II and will be available from March 2020. The basic soil has remained the same, but the Ver.2 includes Amazonia Supplement sticks. Use these sticks to make the substrate even richer in nutrients. Normal Amazonia contains much more nitrogen. Use these pallets under the soil to increase the presence of nitrogen and help aquarium plants grow even better.

Our advice is to at least use ADA Power Sand advance, together with ADA Aqua Soil. Other additions such as ADA Bacter100, ADA Clear Super or ADA Tourmaline BC are optional, but will certainly make a positive contribution.

Advice for using ADA Aqua Soil:

Before using ADA Aqua Soil, first read the instructions for use. This states, among other things, that ADA Aqua Soil should not be rinsed/washed out before use. ADA Aqua Soil is applied to an empty and dry aquarium and shaped using a Sand Flattener and/or brush. (On top of any substrate additions and/or Power Sand.) This is followed by the application of the Hardscape. A layer of Powder type can now be carefully applied and spread with a brush.
Before planting, it is advisable to thoroughly wet the soil with, for example, a plant sprayer. The granules absorb water and do not float later. Planting will also be easier. Always use suitable aquascape tweezers for this! After planting, the plants can be covered with damp paper towels and the aquarium can be carefully filled with water. Make sure that the water does not flow too fast, causing the soil and the plants just placed to become loose!
The Aqua Soil is full of nutrients that can initially cause nitrite peaks. Only bring in animals when it is safe!! Also take into account fish such as Corydoras and Apistogramma species that can stir up the substrate. We are not responsible for misuse or damage and the use of ADA Aqua Soil is at your own risk. It is not without reason that many participants and champions of the International Aquatic Plant Layout Contest choose ADA Aqua Soil when setting up the aquarium and it can rightly be called the best soil for the planted aquarium!

IMPORTANT: Water change in the start-up phase:
1st week: Change half the water every day
2nd week: Change half the water every 2 days
3rd week: Change half the water every 3 days
4th week: Start reducing to 10-50% water changes every week.

This is not a complete necessity, but it is a smart thing to do.
