[Free shipping] SubstrateSource Red Lava Gravel 10 Pound  SubstrateSource Natural Lava Gravel is a highly porous substrate for use in freshwater aquariums. The lava has been screened to remove large granules and can be used as a complete aquarium substrate system.

Nutrients: The lava has not been treated with additives or altered from its naturally inert state; however, it does have a high Cation Exchange Capacity (CEC). CEC is a measure of a substrate's ability to store and release compounds including critical nutrients for healthy plant growth. These nutrients are absorbed from fish waste or fertilizers added to the aquarium and made available in the substrate bed, at the root site.

5 star review by customer 60GPlanted for Red Lava Gravel 10 Pound by on December 1, 2010Verified Purchase

I bought 3 boxes and they've all arrived now. Everything looks great. Tested some in a clear vase about two hours ago and the water is totally clear now. I was impressed by the Substrate Source YouTube video and was a bit skeptical at first, but I believe it now! Can't wait to get my tank set up. I will definitely submit it as a Creative and you can see my progress.

I ordered on Wednesday and got it next day.....super fast service and product looks good so far. I'll post if anything changes. I must say I was a bit worried since I found SS through FB. Glad things worked out.
