To replicate the functional aspects of the blackwater ecosystem, it helps to build upon the materials which comprise it.

To us, the substrate of our aquariums is not just a "set and forget" piece of "decoration." It's far more than a set-and-forget part of our aquariums. Rather, we view it as the literal foundation of our functionally aesthetic microcosms. A habitat for fishes, crustaceans, and plants. A place to set the stage for biological activity with botanicals, or our "substrate additives." An opportunity to represent Nature in the most dynamic, realistic way possible. Our collection includes materials that you're likely to see nowhere else- materials that will inspire, engage, and delight the senses.
