Professional bottom substrate for freshwater shrimp aquariums, produced in Japan. In terms of appearance, the soil resembles black gravel, with an average grain diameter of 1 to 4 mm. Natural, carefully selected components bring relevant water values to the optimal level for shrimps and support an intact ecosystem - an all-round feel-good package for the flora and fauna of your aquarium.
The natural environment of shrimp shows a carbonate hardness of up to 3°d and a pH value in the range of 5.5 to 6.5. In this ideal habitat, they thrive healthily and show a willingness to reproduce. Advanced Soil Shrimp Powder contains natural humic acids that are released into the water*; they have a positive effect on the reproductive readiness of crustaceans. Plant growth is also stimulated. An intact plant environment is important for shrimps; it harbours numerous useful filter bacteria. The Soil also intensifies biological filtration in the aquarium - ideal for the establishment of beneficial nitrifying bacteria. As it also absorbs toxic elements, it helps maintain a healthy ecosystem with an increase in water quality; the water also becomes visibly crystal clear.
*The soil releases the nutrients continuously, so it is effective for a long time and allows a sustainable application without constant changes or adjustments by means of additional nutrient applications.
More feeling of safety and well-being for shrimps - crustaceans like it dark and feel safe thanks to the black colouring of the Soil; their natural shyness disappears, and they become more active! Owners can then admire the rich colours of their shells more often and study their interesting behaviour. Plus: The dark colour of the soil contrasts with the rich colours of the animals and makes them stand out even more.
Note: Conditions described refer to the most common dwarf shrimp of the species Caridina cf. cantonensis, including demanding highly cultured species of the "Taiwan" class - for example Panda, King Kong, Red Wine - and many other freshwater shrimp of the genera Caridina and Neocaridina.
