Color Difference between Amazonia and Amazonia II

Hi



The following are quotes from this link about Amazonia II: http://www.adana-usa.com/index.php?m...roducts_id=266

"Aqua Design Amano introduced Aqua Soil-Amazonia II, a new Amazonia type substrate, produced with different black soil mixture ratio ... As the base color ... (of Amazonia II) is slightly different from original Amazonia."

"2. (Amazonia II) ... contains black soil, appropriate for water plants growth, and its natural color matches well with planted aquarium."



What's the difference in the color between the two? I can't tell from the pics on the site. Both look like some shade of black.

Is there a texture difference too?



Thanks

i have Amazonia II... i dont know about colorof Amazonia I, but Amazonia II is quite dark...also i have read that Amazonia II does not stir up as easily as I. I have found that to be the case. I have done a replant already and while there is slight cloudiness it settles very quickly.

Thanks Jason

I was wanting the darkest one and my tap water is soft.

So Amazonia it is!

Again, thanks

I don't mean to threadjack, but Bgoodwins, what has your experience been with II in terms of initial cycling and set up? With I, I went through about a month of hell (my H2O is liquid rock)...anyone else with comments on this subject, please PM with your comments, suggestions, etc?

To answer your initial question, I have had both I and II and I think that II is slightly darker in color and you will be very pleased with it. It does tend to lighten up if you let it dry out but it will revert to its original deep black when wet.
