I want to buy Aqua soil from ADA, but the Malayan pictures are kinda misleading, i wanted to know which one has more red than the two, Malayan Aquasoil or Africa ?
Yes i saw that, but still misleading, take a look at his tank, the Malayan is more like brown, but yet still in your link i see it's very red, but then go to the web site and you see some 3 liter bags look different than some 9 liter, its confusing i might have to call in to get a definite answer, thanks though.

Substrate: ADA Malayan Aquasoil

Then Also read here:

This Aqua Soil is made from reddish soil. Although its organic elements and nitrogen content are not as high as Amazonia, it is far superior to marine sand in its ability to grow aquatic plants. It lowers the pH of water easily and has an excellent ability to adjust water quality.
This Aqua Soil is made from somewhat yellowish brown soil. It contains the least amount of organic elements and nitrogen among the Aqua Soil series. Its ability to lower pH is the highest and it enables you to maintain acidic water quality easily.
