ACTIVE SOIL: The active soil influences the water values and adjusts their pH range in a way that is favourable to most aquarium plants. The values may vary depending on the fish species being kept

  • NUTRIENT STORAGE: Active soil can both absorb and release nutrients from the water – the buffer effect is ideal for good plant growth
  • NATURAL-LOOKING GRAIN SIZE: The grain size of our ScaperLine soil is ideal for small, medium-sized and also larger aquascapes and provides good support for the plant roots
  • CLASSIC COLOURS: The aquascaping soils of the OASE ScaperLine are available in the classic substrate colours of black and brown – and are also ideal for creating beautiful colour effects on the substrate
  • PLEASE DO NOT WASH OUT: You do not need to wash out the active soil before using it in your aquascape; it is poured into the aquarium dry and modelled there without the water getting cloudy

The ScaperLine Soil in the 3 liter pack is the right basis for a planted aquascape - the active substrate ensures a beautiful appearance and is the best prerequisite for the best plant growth. It softens the water and creates a slightly acidic pH range that is favorable for most aquarium plants. Active soil can also absorb nutrients from the water and release them again when needed - the buffer effect is ideal for sustained good plant growth. The grain of our ScaperLine-Soil is perfect for small, medium-sized and larger scapes and gives the plant roots a good hold. In the color black, the substrate brings out the colors of animals and plants. The soil can be used directly, washing out is no longer necessary. The soil granules are fired at lower temperatures and are therefore stable but not too hard.
