Maybe even smaller than a dime

It's ADA Malaya soil... The tank cycling now. I heard that Malaya buffers even more than Africana so I wanted to use it for my attempt at a Taiwan Bee Tank

Ok thanks I went 2-3 per 4 liters. I'm thinking of getting another bottle for my 55 gallon to add into the filter

I'm not feeling this product. It's too small that you need a lot of these balls in a 10 gallon and could skew the aesthetic of your tank.

If you could stack these balls on top of each other in a corner I think that look would be better than spreading them out horizontally.

Be careful I think Africana out of all of them buffer the lowest.....but if it works like mine did it will put you down to the mid to low 4's for ph
