    Hello,

    Does anyone know the difference between these two substrates? And if I may use the jbl ada under the Amazon?

    3runoperepereira,

    Power Sand is the base of the Nature Aquarium substrate. Power Sand is composed of porous volcanic stones


    JBL PROSCAPE VOLCANO MINERAL


    Ideal substrates for the professional care of plants and shrimps.

    Proscapers often use special substrates (soils), which have been especially adapted to their requirements. Unlike „normal“ substrates (sand, gravel), soils are not water- neutral, but have a softening effect. They make the water softer and acidify the aquarium just enough to slide the pH value slightly into the acidic range. The JBL plant soils are rich in nutrients and supply the plants with both nutrients and minerals, whereas the shrimp soils are free of nutrients.

    At a guess Power sand is just volcanic rock where as JBL PROSCAPE VOLCANO MINERAL it has a lot of goodies added.

    It could be done buy why bother all you are doing is building the ada up or a shallow ada for planting.
