WIO Mere substrate is a unique concept designed to inspire nature artists. It is inspired by the mellow sands and forest debris found in the mighty Pool Malebo of the Congo River in Africa. This substrate is perfect for mimicking the habitats of deltas, lakes, and lagoons, where currents and floods have deposited organic material.
Imagine a vast delta basin where a mighty river flows and meanders through lush tropical forests, carrying a rich mixture of sand, gravel, and organic material. As the river slows and approaches the delta, the current becomes weaker, and the materials carried by the river begin to settle on the Riverbed. Over time, the organic material decomposes, creating a rich substrate perfect for a wide range of aquatic plants and animals.
Inspired by these dynamic and complex ecosystems, our Mere substrate brings the warm, earthy tones of the Congo River delta to your aquarium. The unique combination of yellow-ochre sands, gravels, and twigs creates a rich and engaging substrate that is perfect for recreating the unique habitats of deltas, lakes, and lagoons.
With a size mix ranging from 0.1 to 40cm, the Mere substrate is suitable for any aquarium design. Whether you want to create a natural-looking biotope or a more structured aquascape, the Mere substrate is versatile enough to meet your needs.
And because our Mere substrate is made from 100% natural materials, you can be sure it is safe for your aquarium inhabitants. Unlike some artificial substrates, our product contains no harmful chemicals or toxins that could harm your fish or plants.
To create a warm, organic atmosphere in your aquarium, look no further than our Mere substrate. With its unique combination of colours and materials, it is sure to inspire and delight nature lovers and aquarium enthusiasts alike.
