Best soil?

I am looking for a soil substrate to use in my next tank but Im not sure which one to choose.
Is there any difference between Mr Aqua soil, ADA soil and Oliver Knotts aquarium soil or do they do all the same thing?

"Best" is subjective and depends upon what you'll be using it for.

All those substrates you mentioned are quite different from each other.

Mr. Aqua is basically just dirt with little in the realm of plant nutrition.

Knott's product isn't available in the United States.

ADA Aquasoil Amazonia has tons of nutrients for plants and leaches ammonia for a month+ so you don't have to add an ammonia source for cycling new tanks.
