ADA AQUASOIL AMAZONIA II !!!! new from ada!!

Release of "Aqua Soil Amazonia II"
Aqua Soil Amazonia has been used by many planted aquarium hobbyists around the world, as base substrate material for growing aquatic plants. Aqua Soil Amazonia is produced from black soil with rich organic substances, helping the plant growth, and most aquatic plant species can grow in healthy condition with Amazonia. But, in the alkaline base water*, there are rare case reports that organic substance such as humic acid may seep into the water, and cause water coloring or cloudiness.
So this time Aqua Design Amano introduced "Aqua Soil-Amazonia II", a new Amazonia type substrate, produced with different black soil mixture ratio, preventing water coloring or cloudiness. As the base color or plant growing pattern is different from existing lines, we continuously market Aqua Soil Amazonia. Please select according to your needs and preference. But if your base water* is alkaline, we recommend to use Amazonia II.

*Base Water refers to all types of water used for the aquarium, including tap water, groundwater, or aquarium tank water.

Distinctive FEATURE of "Aqua Soil-Amazonia II"
1. Amazonia II has less incident of water coloring or cloudiness.
2. It contains black soil, appropriate for water plants growth, and its natural color matches well with planted aquarium.
3. It lowers pH and KH, and makes ideal water condition for most plants and tropical fish.

Epic! LOL I don't see it on the American sites yet. I check both AF and ADA Texas, none yet. I wonder if it's going to sell for the same price as the regular??

I'm guessing its still to loose and light for active bottom dwellers like clown loaches though? I'm still trying to figure what to fill my 240G with.

Anyone notice number 3?

Lowers PH and KH. I wonder how much it lowers?

Did Aqua Soil-Amazonia do this as well?

i keep loaches with aqusoil, they will occasionally uproot a newly planted plant, but rarely if ever an established one. its not a problem for me yet.

Amazonia tanked my kH and killed all my plants. They're recovering though. Not sure about pH.

My plants were grown in very hard water. When I switched to ADA AS, I guess the drastic change in kH/gH melted 99% of my plants.

After 13-14 50% WCs, my kH/gH are close to 1 now.
