Tetra Active Substrate is a natural substrate which provides a suitable plant friendly medium for aquarium plants to grow in. The large surface and porous nature of the clay granules which make up Active Substrate offers several advantages compared to traditional gravels.

Fill your aquarium with a 4cm high layer of this substrate. For even better plant growth we recommend a 2-4cm layer of Tetra Complete Substrate.

A 3L bag is suitable for a 30L tank.
