Fluval Plant & Shrimp Stratum Substrate now Available.


Fluval Stratum is the ideal substrate for stimulating the growth of aquatic plants in freshwater aquariums. Plant roots easily penetrate and spread throughout the substrate, allowing plants to obtain a variety of key, readily available nutrients that will make them flourish. The addition of FLUVAL PLANT MICRO NUTRIENTS will ensure a full complement of essential macro and micro nutrients. The substrate’s light, non-compacting, porous structure is also highly beneficial to nitrifying bacteria, which rapidly colonize the vast porous surface, providing optimal water quality for plants. Fluval Stratum’s inherent properties will help support a neutral to slightly acidic pH, ideal for most plant species and species of tropical fish or shrimp normally kept in planted aquariums. Fluval Stratum also provides new born shrimp with the ideal refuge, allowing them to escape predation until they are large enough to emerge. This highly attractive substrate will not discolor water and helps control organic discoloration usually present when natural driftwood is used.

I think a 2kg bag works out to be more than 2L

But not by very much.

Have had to work it all out before for people, as some soils are sold by the litre and some by the kg BUT very few list both measurements!

You can get a bit of an idea from the fluval homepage.........

Recommended depth : 3-4 cm (1.18 - 1.57 in)

How much should I use?

< 45 cm (17.72 in) = 1 x 2 kg Fluval Stratum bag

45 cm (17.72 in) = 1 x 4 kg Fluval Stratum bag

60 cm (23.62 in) = 1 x 8 kg Fluval Stratum bag

90 cm (35.43 in) = 1 x 8+4 kg Fluval Stratum bag
