The Scaper's Soil is an active substrate that is ideal for plant and aquascaping aquariums and is available in two sizes.

With Scaper's Soil you can create a professional foundation in your NanoCube. Scaper's Soil is an active aquarium-based active subsoil with volcanic ash that creates slightly acidic and soft water, as most animals and plants in their habitat know it. Therefore, Scaper's Soil is especially suitable for plant aquariums, especially aquascaping and shrimp aquariums.

Made from 100% natural resources, the Soil is made from a variety of carefully selected natural soils that provide all the vital minerals and trace elements that aquarium plants need. The irregularly shaped grains with a diameter of 1-4 mm make the soil look particularly natural, optimally oxygenate it, prevent the formation of fouling and attract important microorganisms that are needed for the development of baby shrimp. The loose structure allows optimal soil perfusion, which is why plant roots can grow well in it. Scaper's Soil offers you the perfect basis for healthy and powerful plant growth with intense colours - even mosses benefit from it and show it through compact growth and lush green leaves.

The deep black colour creates an intense, vibrant contrast to the bright green of the plants.
With the Scaper's Soil you can actively prevent annoying algae growth: the special nutrient formula lets the nutrients primarily benefit the plants, but not the algae. Thanks to the nutrient buffer function, as with a battery, the excess nutrients are absorbed from the free water and only released back to the plants when needed. The powerful growth of aquarium plants is the best algae protection ever; because well-growing plants are the toughest algae competitors!
Scaper's Soil is perfect for soft water scapes with acidic water values because the Soil has active ion exchange properties. As a result, the pH is lowered and stabilised in the slightly acidic range at about pH 6.0-6.5. In addition, it reduces the carbonate hardness, depending on the source water up to 0 ° dKH and serves as a natural source of valuable humic and fulvic acids, but without colouring the water! Scaper's Soil creates water values that are found in most habitats of our fish and is also perfect for keeping and breeding soft water shrimps such as Crystal Red or Red Bees.

Despite the soft water, Scaper's Soil can also be safely used in combination with a CO2 system, as the pH is stabilized by the soil. The porous surface also provides cleaning bacteria with an ideal surface, so that the whole ground becomes a huge bio-filter, which has enormous self-cleaning power. At the same time, the soil binds numerous pollutants. The granules are double-fired and therefore water-stable in the long term, which is why it is also ideal for soil filters.

Our expert Chris Lukhaup recommends:
On the Scaper's Soil, your white and yellow shrimp will show off really well and create an impressive contrast with your magnificent plants!
