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.

Key Features

  • No rinsing required
  • Low ammonia release
  • pH & kH buffering
  • Suitable for tropical fish and shrimp tanks.
  • Designed for freshwater and planted aquariums.
  • Available in two colors and three granule sizes.

Bag size

  • 1L - Recommended for UNS 20C cube aquarium.
  • 3L - Recommended for UNS 45U standard aquarium.
  • 10L - Recommended for UNS 60U standard aquarium.

Granule size

  • Extra Fine (~1mm) - Recommended for planted aquariums that contain plants with fine root systems such as Hemianthus Callitrichoides (HC). Can also be used for nano tanks or as a top layer and top off in existing aquariums.
  • Fine (~3mm) - Ideal for a variety of aquatic plant species that have varying root sizes. Solid all-around choice that will accommodate many variations of planted aquarium styles.
  • Normal (~5mm) - Larger granules that are well-suited for thick-rooted aquatic plants such as Echinodorus plants. Normal also works best for larger aquarium sizes.

Safety Note - For best practices, please ensure ammonia and nitrites are eliminated prior to adding livestock to the aquarium. Color choice will not alter water chemistry.

No Ammonia Spike & no dust

Able to add without needing to rinse. Pellets don't float and easy to plant in.
