Description

The ideal nutrient base bed for all types of aquarium plants. Developed over 25 years by commercial aquarium plant growers. The open structure of the nutrient rich base maximises water flow through the bed for optimal bacterial growth. Colombo Nutri Base contains all the important nutrients and minerals for optimal plant growth.

Extremely simple to use but must be topped with your chosen gravel/sand/substrate

A 5L bag is sufficient for a base of 60x40cm.

Tip: For the ultimate power charged substrate that will really make your plants fly, add Colombo Nutri Base then top with Colombo Flora Base Substrate (see related products tab). Then you'll be unstoppable (well almost...).

Hi, I see that there is a warehouse collection option on the checkout page and was wondering if I was lucky enough to be in a reasonable distance? I live in East Kent. Cheers Neil

Hi - is this product ok to use with freshwater shrimp?

 
Staff

Yes it is


 
Guest
I was going ask a similar question to 'freshwater shrimp' as the Nutri Base contains trace elements of Copper and all my German shrimp text books say Trace Elements of copper are a strict no no for shrimp keeping - so is it a yes or no

 
Staff

It's safe for shrimp. We use it here.


 
Guest
That is good enough for me Richard. Regards Wayne

How deep substrate and how much topper substrate should be used?

 
Staff

Use this simply to cover the bottom of your tank then top with substrate and make sure you have at least 5cm depth. I recommend Colombo Flora-Base as your complete substrate on top of this one.

Guest
i Richard . it says 1 bag does a base 60x40cm . csn i ask how deepa bed it gives over that area please?

not very deep at all. Remember this is just the scattering across the bottom of your tank and then either topping with florabase or your chosen gravel.


 
Guest
