Alder Cones (Various Quantities)
Shrimp LOVE Alder Cones! Not only do they make an attractive, natural decor for your aquarium, they have many beneficial properties as well! Alder Cones can lower the PH in your aquarium, creating a more sustainable environment. They also have Anti-Fungal & Anti-Bacterial properties, which is great for sensitive shrimp. Generally the effects last 1-2 months, but the cones can remain in your aquarium as decor. Young shrimp also can use these cones as a safe place to hide. Shrimp tend to be fascinated with these cones and can provide a good amount of entertainment!
Please note: It is always a good idea to boil your Alder Cones, and then soak them in water for 24 hours before placing them in your aquarium. Natural Tannins are secreted from these natural cones and will discolor your water, this can be greatly reduced by boiling and soaking them first.
