From the Oliver Knott range of aquascaping products, Plant Iron Sand is a dual purpose substrate. Rich in minerals, the iron sand can be used as a fertilizer in conjuction with the Oliver Knott range of substrates such as AquaEarth, Scoria and Laterite. It can also be used just as a substrate.

Plant Iron Sand is pre-washed and only requires minimal rinsing. Evenly spread over aquarium base.
-Add the laterite to the base of your aquarium & place a dinner plate on top before adding the water. This will prevent the water from disturbing the substrate as your fill up your aquarium.

-For planted aquariums, fill aquarium 3-4cm above the substrate to make easier.

-Use a scraper or ruler to level the surface, or if desired create gradients with the pant iron sand.

-Slowly fill your aquarium after planting.

-Allow your filtration to remove any clay from the water over the course of a few days. Any cloudiness will eventually settle.

-Suitable for freshwater and marine aquariums, paludarium and tropical terrariums.

- Can safely be used with burrowing fish or use with aquarium vacuum cleaners.

-Due to the rich iron properties of Plant Iron Sand the sand is slightly magnetic. Using filters or pumps in or too close to the sand may affect the impeller.
