API FIRST LAYER PURE LATERITE 1560 g

API FIRST LAYER PURE LATERITE 1560 g

All natural premium planting media for aquarium plants

Benefits:

  •     Made of 100% pure Laterite
  •     Better for aquarium plants than gravel alone

Follow API Easy Care Guide and use FIRST LAYER PURE LATERITE when:

  •     Properly caring for aquarium plants

In tropical streambeds, aquatic plants are found growing in a special clay called Laterite.  FIRST LAYER is an all natural Laterite in a granular form, which is ideal for aquarium use.  The pure Laterite in FIRST LAYER provides the perfect planting medium for a natural aquarium.   Mixing all natural Laterite into the gravel bed creates an excellent planting medium for rooted aquatic plants.  Safe for use with tropical fish.

Directions:
New Aquariums:

  •     Rinse FIRST LAYER PURE LATERITE.
  •     Distribute evenly on the bottom of the aquarium, using at least 1 oz. (28 g) of FIRST LAYER PURE LATERITE for every U.S. gallon (3.8 L) of aquarium water
  •     Add about 1 inch (2.5 cm) of gravel on top of FIRST LAYER & mix together
  •     Add the remaining gravel to the aquarium
  •     Gently fill the aquarium with water

Established Aquariums:

  •     Rinse the FIRST LAYER PURE LATERITE
  •     Distribute evenly into the aquarium gravel, using 1 oz (28 g) of FIRST LAYER for every U.S. gallon (3.8 L) of aquarium water

NOTE:Adding FIRST LAYER may cause a harmless, red, cloud that will clear.  Thorough rinsing will reduce clouding.

Tip:  Aquatic plants require sufficient amounts of iron and potassium to produce lush, green leaves.  A lack of iron results in decaying leaves and poor growth; potassium is required by aquarium plants for photosynthesis and maintaining cell pressure.  API® LEAF ZONE®, a liquid plant food, is an excellent source of these essential nutrients.
