Rio Cafe by Brightwell Aquatics is an aquatic substrate that was designed specifically for shrimp and plants. This soil is for aquariums that require an acidic enviroment (pH of less than 7.0) and a low GH. It is suggested to use RO/DI or distilled water with this substrate in order to prolong the life and buffering ability.
We use Brightwell substrate in all of our Caridina aquariums that require a pH of less than 7.0. We have used this soil for years and have had consistent results. If you are looking for a substrate for your shrimp or planted aquarium, look no further as this is the best you will find.
Reason to Use:
This was my first time using this soil, and I really liked it! The water was clear in less than an hour and planting in it was very easy. Highly recommended.
Product works great!
I liked my shopping experience with them. They sent everything super quick. And whatever issues I had wasn’t ignored, they took care of me. It was great!
This is my new go-to Shrimp Soil. Excellent quality soil that is perfect for both shrimp(caridina) and plants. This active substrate cuts down my tank cycle compared to ADA Amazonia. I highly recommend it.
