Captain Bob has outdone himself in his quest to shed the stigma of having the blackest thumb in aquarium gardening!
Aquatic plants need four basic elements in which to flourish in your tank:
Vital Minerals, and
Substrate to hold them to the bottom of the tank
Introducing “Plant-Tastic” substrate for your planted tanks. Naturally enriched with essential minerals, Plant-Tastic comes in two sizes:
…and fine granule:
We all know how our Corys love a fine granule substrate, and combining the two sizes makes a perfect mix for all fish. The fines sink to the bottom of the tank, making an excellent bed in which the roots of your plants will anchor and spread. Unlike dirt, the grainy sand-like texture will never pack down, nor will it foul the water.
If the fines are dislodged, they naturally sift back through the larger granules and settle back where they belong. The fine granules also release nutrients faster, and provide food for you plants right at the root system; where they are absorbed and distributed throughout the plant.
Because of this loose structure, nutrients are readily absorbed by the roots so your plants can easily complete the photosynthesis process. Your plants are healthier and subsequently are able to eliminate more impurities from the water. This, in turn contributes to a healthy eco system for your tank.
The coarse grains provide essential minerals naturally found in soil. They act as slow-release vitamins; continuously feeding your plants as they slowly dissolve. The coarse granules also look great as a stand alone substrate or mixed with your favorite aquarium gravel.
Stop replacing live plants that continually
die off. Give Plant-Tastic a try!
