Indian Almond Bark Tubes improve water quality, acidity and colour, enhance the natural, especially the red colour of tropical fish and shrimp, increase vitality and promote friction, prevent harmful bacterial activity, increase disease resistance and promote healthy growth.
The active ingredients of the Indian Almond Tree (including tannins) have a mildly disinfecting and fungicidal action. Therefore you can use Indian Almond Tree Tubes e.g. preventively good and easy to use against fungal and moulting problems with shrimp and crayfish in the aquarium.
Our tubes of the Indian Almond Tree are untreated and have been gently dried, with the Indian Almond Tree Tubes also providing a natural decoration and a great hiding place/shelter for shrimp, crayfish, crabs and smaller fish.
Recommended use/dosage: 1 piece of bark per 30 litres of water in the aquarium. Before use, pour hot water in the bowl in bowl and let it soak for 1-3 hours.
Put the already cooled and soaked bark into the aquarium, where it will be occupied by your shrimp in a moment. It is not recommended to exceed the dosage!
Initially, the Indian Almond Tree Tubes may float on the surface but then sink to the ground after a few hours. An initial occasional slight cloudiness is natural and completely harmless. This loses itself after a short time.
After about 3 weeks, the tannins are largely released. The Indian Almond Tree Tube can now be renewed or permanently remain as a decoration in the aquarium.
