Aquasoil size, powder or normal.

I want to start a nano aquarium, and I'm leaning more to powder type. Since i heard that normal type will look too big for nanos. Also, I heard that powder type are for small foreground plants, can rotala grow in it. Because I'm thinking of getting rotala for the background plant.

Also, what's the difference between Aquasoil Amazonia I and II.

Is this what you are calling Amazonia II or is UP Amazonia entirely different?

powder type is good for nano's. it's very small "grains" compared to normal type.

difference between Amazonia 1 & 2 is that 2 has more buffering effects than #1, making it more suitable for harder water conditions. at least thats what I read.

I have the New Amazonia Multi-Type in a 7.5 gallon fluval ebi and it doesn't look that out of scale, IMO.

I don't pay much attention aesthetics though.
