http://www.gardenandleisure.com/prod...substrate.html says it is basically an inert substrate, with no nitrogen or phosphorous for the plants. It is also unlikely to have any potassium in it. If you use it, and use other than low light, you will want to fertilize the water with NPK fertilizers.

It is a good subsrate and Tetra are a long well known and reputable company at least in Europe. You do need to cap it with gravel. See the link on how to use:http://www.aquaessentials.co.uk/inde...roducts_id=487

Aquaesssentials is a UK company oriented towards planted aquariums. They would not stock it if it was not any good.
