In order for the plants in your aquarium to show beautiful colours and grow together, they depend on various factors to facilitate their photosynthesis. In addition to good lighting, they also need a nutrient-rich substrate and a carbon source. Some plants absorb their nutrients through the leaves, others also via the roots. The perfect combination of the required factors will allow you to make your aquarium an eyecatcher with magnificent plant growth and stunning colours. Algae growth is inhibited as the plants deprive the algae of a food base.

With Shrimp King Active Soil, create a professional foundation in your Nano Cube. This soil is 100% natural raw material. Made from various, carefully selected, natural soils, it provides vital minerals and trace minerals that support the health and growth of shrimp. Shrimp King Active Soil was specially developed for the successful husbandry and breeding of shrimp. It is particularly suitable for all species that love soft, slightly acidic water, especially bee shrimp, such as the popular Crystal Red, Red Bee, Tiger Bees or Shadow Shrimp. It deliberately changes the water into a slightly acidic and soft way, as most animals and plants want in their habitat. As a natural ion exchanger, it lowers the pH and stabilises it slightly in an acidic range (about 6.0-6.5). At the same time, it reduces the carbonate hardness - depending on the starting water to approx. 0-2 ° dKH - making the water significantly softer. It also serves as a natural source of valuable humic and fulvic acids without colouring the water.

Therefore, the soil is especially suitable for shrimp aquariums. Made from 100% natural resources, it is made from a variety of carefully selected natural soils that provide all the vital minerals and trace elements that shrimp and aquarium plants need. The irregularly shaped grains with a diameter of 1-4 mm make the soil look particularly natural and supply it with oxygen, which prevents fouling and helps important microorganisms that are needed for baby shrimp development. The loose structure allows optimal soil perfusion, so plant roots grow well in it. Shrimp King Active Soil provides the perfect base for healthy and powerful plant growth with intense colours - even mosses benefit from it with compact growth and lush green leaves. The deep black colour creates an intense, vibrant contrast to the bright green of the plants.

In spite of the soft water, Shrimp King Active Soil can also be safely used in combination with a CO2 system, as the pH is stabilised by the soil. The porous surface provides cleaning bacteria with an ideal environment so the ground becomes a huge bio-filter with enormous self-cleaning power. At the same time, the soil binds numerous pollutants. Using Shrimp King BeeSalt with osmosis water even extends the life of Shrimp King Active Soil!
