 Just look at that little face... No wonder then, that so many fishkeepers find these little puffers so hard to resist.

Collected from the mineral-rich foothills of Mount Aso Volcano in Japan, new Fluval Stratum is an alternative substrate for planted aquariums and those featuring shrimp.

Fluval Stratum encourages strong plant growth — the roots easily penetrate and spread throughout the substrate to obtain key nutrients. The porous structure allows for rapid colonisation by beneficial nitrifying bacteria. This substrate helps support neutral to slightly acidic pH — ideal for most plants, tropical fish and shrimp normally kept in planted aquariums — and also provides newborn shrimp with a refuge from predators until they are large enough to emerge.

It won’t discolour the aquarium water and actually helps control organic discolouration when natural driftwood is present. For use in freshwater aquariums.

Price: 2kg £9.99; 4kg £18.99; 8kg £35.99.
