love it! get a 3litre bag

if you want a long term tank get africana
if you want an easy to maintain tank but not such good plant growth get malaysia
if you want a really fast growing 6month tank get amazonia

hope that helps

Probably made it up.

I have talked to a lot of people who have used ADA substrates and they are all almost the same.....Amazonia being the more nutrient packed one though.

FUNction over form

The only thing I know that is different from the three are how acidic the substrate is. It was in the ADA Catalogue. Amazonia was most acidic and I don't remember for Africana and Malaysia, but they were much less than Amazonia.
