Azoo plant grower substrate and Up aquasoil


Anyone with experiences using both substrates? Just need a little nudge before I go buying my substrate. Thanks...

Jump on it.

I'm using Azoo Plant Grower Bed a ton lately and really enjoy it as an easier-to-obtain alternative to Aquasoil. Definitely not the same but it's a good start with some fertilization and little, if any, ammo.

Good to hear since I'm leaning towards the azoo. Does the azoo substrate hold slopes well?

It's just like Aquasoil, the Fluval Stratum products and the rest of the pelletized soil products. Holds up pretty well. They'll all lose their slope over time.

But it's always best to reinforce things with rock/wood/other things.
