    Hi,

    Thanks for sharing.

    I share the same opinion about some brands like ADA. Great marketing machine and very stylish products. I doubt about the effectiveness of some products.

    Cheers

    Thank you Andrea!

    Now that I'm famous, perhaps Mr. Amano would accept me to interview him! :rock:

    Amazing interview, great blog also.

    Interesting that mixing akadama and aquasoil gets good results. Really good idea.

    Thank you Luis

    This is the third time I use Aquasoil Amazonia and the third time I´m not happy with the results...

    Definitely It will be the last time to push this type of substrate in my tanks.


    Best regards!

    You did not had good results? What was the issue?

    I am to rescape a tank and was thinking of having just Amazonia, with some akadama at the back to raise it. :)

    disadvantages of the Amazonia II:

    - exaggerated increase of nitrogen compounds in the beginning

    - the granules of the Amazonia melt soon

    - water is likely to become cloudy

    Those are the problems noted with Amazonia II. It was discontinued due to those problems. The *NEW type is much better. I have used it in two tanks thus far and have not had those problems.

    Maybe some cloudiness if the soil is opened and sits too long. It dries out and that causes some breaking of the granules, but nothing too bad.

    Cheers Oscar- was fun reading your interview.
    It was like me going back in time and recalling a lot of the similar problems!
