Koi mineral mud/powder IMO is the same
thing as crystal red mineral rock or powder.
and much cheaper.

Search for Montmorillonite usually comes innpowder form, some mold it into rocks and sell it for a fortune.

Hi
I never know it just the same thing as mineral rock and this is much cheaper.
So how much would you put in the tank? the measure spoon they give is for 100 gallons or more.
Thank you:D

I'd dose it like crs mineral powder. Either as substrate base.

Or, you can google how to make your own rock. I've read somewhere where it's made, dried out and placed in a tank where it slowly disolves.

It's the same. That's the brand name.

Also realize it's usually used in japan as they have soft water.
If your water isn't softer than a down pillow I wouldn't bother.
