5"to 6" CHOLLA WOOD
Japanese Tourmaline Mineral Balls(10mm)
INDIAN ALMOND LEAVES & (10) FREE ALDER CONES
YOU WILL GET CHOLLA WOOD CLOSE TO THE ONES SHOWN IN THE PHOTO.
EACH ONE IS A LITTLE DIFFERENT.
Effects and Benefits of Alder Cones In a lower pH, the bacterial density also is low,
which can help prevent bacterial infections and hatch shrimp eggs properly.
Besides, fungi also grow worse in an acid surrounding.
So, we have this reaction chain:
the alder cones release humid acids to the water the humid
acids will lower the hardness and therefore the pH a lower pH reduces the density of bacteria
and fungi (it is supposed that acids can pass cell membranes of bacteria easier
in a pH ~6 and effect their duplicating and growth)
Shrimp like to feed on alder cones - and baby shrimp have a good place to sit and hide.
Remove the cones after 3-4 weeks, before they decompose and break apart.
All our Cholla is Harvested from free standing Cholla.
This means the wood has not been on ground collecting fungi,moisture ect.
It is also Thorn/spike free! %100 ORGANIC,
not harvested from farmlands or cattle pastures.
Cholla Wood is a fantastic and natural way to lower and buffer PH.
It also has benefit for shrimps tank and shrimp love to graze for biofilm
on the surfaces of the wood or hide in there while/after molting.
To prepare the wood before putting in aquarium, simply boil it or soak in hot water
for a day to remove excess tannins and to make it sink.
Indian Almond Leaves
Dimensions- 4" to 6"
A MUST FOR ALL SHRIMP TANKS
Ketapang or Sea Almond or Indian Almond or
leaves are known to most,
if not all Asian breeders softwater / blackwater tropical fishes (including arowana, discus, apostos, bettas, tetras, plecos, killifish etc),
to be one of the best water conditioners to promote healing and breeding.
They are known to have antibacteria and antifungal properties.
Bettas are known to be induced to spawn by just putting a few of the leaves into their tank.
Fish suffering finrot or injuries (such as spawning injuries) will definitely benefit from having the leaves in their quarantine tub.
But they can be used for the usual aquariums too.
When soaked in water these leaves will leach a strong brown dye that is full of organic acids like humic acids and tannic acids.
These may be useful for inhibiting many types of bacteria as well as to detoxify harmful heavy metals found in the aquarium.
For bettas, put a 1-2 sq inch piece (or a quarter of a leaf) into each 1 gallons (4 litre) jar.
For usual aquarium put 2-3 leaves per 25 gallons (100 litres) of water for 14-21 days.
Simply put the leaves into the aquarium. After 1-2 days the leaves will be water-logged and sink.
Apart from their benefical effects on the water, they will tan the water slightly (to a clear amber)
and provide a very natural stream-bottom look to your aquarium.
Alternatively, you can boil the leaves to make blackwater extract and dose when you need.
JAPANESE TOURMALINE MINERAL BALLS
SIZE - 10mm - LIFESPAN - 1 -2 YEARS
Tourmaline Mineral Ball is a calcium based ceramic ball that is design for shrimps.
It vitalises metabolism and strengthens immune system.
Mineral Ball will also remove odor and impurities.
It also brighten shrimp's body, color and aids in moulting.
Moreover, it contains positive and negative poles which can de-ionize the water and make better water quality.
Usage- Put Tourmaline Mineral Balls directly inside your tank or filter.
The minerals will be released slowly. When the nutrients of the soil are losing or GH is low,
Tourmaline Mineral Balls can be used to improve it.
Since the process is slow and continuous, so shrimps are able to adapt to it.
Dosage- 1 Ball per gallon of water(10 balls treats 10 gallons).
