Torn between substrates SL vs ADA


Recommended Posts

I recently decided to return to the hobby and raise Crystal Red Shrimps.

 

I currently have a 17g ADA tank, and was looking into different substrates that would be the best to use (help buffer PH, etc etc)

 

I can't decide between...

 

SL-Aqua Nature Soil

ADA Aqua Soil Amazonia

Fluval Shrimp Stratum

 

Price isn't really an issue, I just want the best option possible. Also, how many bags of each, would you recommend in a 17 gallon?

 

Thanks

I think either the ada or the SL will both be good.  just know that the ada gives off ammonia for up to 4 weeks.

 

also one of our own here on the forum sells SL products  -  @bostoneric  from discobee

 

Thank you,

 

I will most likely lean towards SL Aqua unless I can get a good deal on ADA aqua soil.

I use ada and its been proven over years of use by many hobbyists and well known breeders as well.  Its also not that pricey if your setting up a 10 gallon all you need is a 3L bag per 10 gallons (17 gallons you'd aim closer to 4-5 Litres). There is a longer wait with ADA to release ammonia and fully cycle. I do also want to try SL aqua just to compare the 2. I hear that it also is great!
