Tropica Substrate

Anybody have experienced using this? It's more readily available online now in the US and it seems to have been around awhile in Europe as George Farmer uses it in the UK (he might work for Tropica as their videos highlight his tanks with Tropica Substrate).

Just looking for first hand experience. I've only used Ecocomplete and Controsoil so far as a reference.

Hi oldpunk

I've never used any of the ADA substrates so what exactly is ADA powersand? When would you use that vs. ADA aquasoil?

You put that stuff under your regular substrate. It supposed to help the tank stay healthier over a long period. Most people feel it's an unneeded step that doesn't really do anything. Some people swear by it.
