Q) I am wondering if I should get Power Sand or Power Sand Special. Are all the
benefits of Power Sand covered by Power Sand Special? Do I still need to use
Bacter 100 even if I use Power Sand Special?

A) Power Sand Special is the substrate material based on Power Sand with
additional organic nutrients. It is excellent for plants actively absorbing
nutrients from the roots, such as Echinodorus and Cryptocoryne, and Bacter 100
and Clear Super are blended for promoting the growth of bacteria. Therefore,
the benefits of Power Sand are all covered by Power Sand Special and you do not
need to use additives such as Bacter 100 and Clear Super if you wish to set up
an aquarium in the easiest way possible. However, substrate additives such as
Bacter 100, Clear Super, Tourmaline BC, PENAC W and PENAC P can be added only
during the initial set-up of the substrate. If you wish to create the best
substrate environment possible, these additives are highly recommended.
Bacter 100 and Clear Super will not affect the aquarium condition even if an
excessive amount is supplied. Rather, higher effects can be expected if extra
additive is added. For your information, Power Sand Special is remarkably rich
in nutrients and it may easily cause the eutrophication of aquarium water
during the initial set-up. In view of this, such substrate material is suitable
for experienced aquarists who can ensure the proper management of water quality
including water change. Your experience and expertise in water quality
management also should be taken into account when you select the best substrate
material for your purposes.
