Instructions USe 1-2 pounds per gallon of aquarium water. Two pounds or more per gallon will deliver best performance. An ideal depth is at least 3 in.
It is designed to be a complete substate but may also serve as a bottom layer with your choice of non-carbonate substrate on top (do not use marble, dolomite, limestone, crushed coral, shells aragonite etc.).
For new aquarium set-ups simply pour in the entire contents of this bag and fill aquarium with de-chlorintated tap water or, for best results, de-ionized or distilled water. It will automatically segregate into 2 distinct layers with the finer material on the bottom.
For established systems, drain and discard most of the liquid contents of the product before placing into the system.
Warning! Placing new gravel over the top (capping) of an estabished gravel bed can be damaging to aquatic life. Gently mix new material into the existing bed with fingers. For added safety this process can be done, in sections, over the course of a few days.
Place aquatic plants with roots deep into the substrate. Plants may be held in place with the aid of small rocks, pieces of wood, etc.
