Borneo Wild Shrimp Soil has been developed to provide soft water shrimps in particular with an environment rich in minerals that agrees with them. This substrate has a very natural appearance. It is a very practical soil with a good reputation among shrimp breeders and tank keepers.
Borneo Wild Shrimp Soil maintains a slightly acidic pH and a favorable total hardness, which makes it a very good substrate for keeping shrimps like Crystal Red, Red Cherry and all other aquarium animals that prefer soft water. The grain size of this soil facilitates a good water and oxygen circulation within the substrate and improves the development of beneficial microorganisms, which make the substrate a fully functional biological system in its own right. Its richness in natural minerals makes Borneo Wild Shrimp Soil a wonderfully suited substrate for breeding and keeping soft-water shrimps.
Shrimp Soil makes the water crystal-clear by absorbing impurities and tannin, which color the water brownish and are given off by driftwood. It reduces the concentration of ammonium, which enables the tank keeper to stock the tank with fish and invertebrates earlier and more safely.
Shrimp Soil is manufactured in a special way developed by the manufacturing company that stabilizes the soil granules to a high extent and prevents them from turning to dust for a long time.
