Ultum Nature Systems Controsoil is made from high-quality, natural soil and volcanic ash. When starting a new aquarium, it is normal to see a rise in ammonia levels. Ammonia spikes can help jump start the aquarium, but they are also dangerous to livestock and may promote algae growth. Controsoil's specialized composition works to deliver the perfect level of nutrrients to aquatic plants without excess. Minimal ammonia release during initial stages ensures a safer and more stabilized start, making UNS Controsoil a fantastic aqua soil for hobbyists of all skill levels.
Controsoil is available in various granule sizes and colors to accommodate user preference and aquatic plant choice.
