Invertebrates, particularly shrimps and dwarf crayfish, represent a new trend in aquaristics. Although socialisation with fish is possible under certain circumstances, crustaceans and the like are generally kept together. Larger or territorial species require tanks 60cm in length. Many species, kept in small groups, can cope with tanks that are 40 or even less than 20cm in length. Colourful crustaceans require numerous hiding places.
They generally react more sensitively than fish to chemical loads in the water. Most species are kept at a pH value in the alkaline range, i.e. over 7, and in rather soft water. Depending on the place of origin, the temperatures can range from 10°C for freshwater crayfish to over 23°C for exotic shrimp.
Ground is a lime-free, water-neutral substrate. It ideally supports plants and has a highly decorative effect. Its grain size of 1 - 4 mm aids circulation in the aquarium bed, while its round form is ideally suited for ground dwellers such as catfish and loaches.
Perfect hideaway of burnt clay for shrimps.
Ideal decorative root for aquaria. A great eye catcher in every aquarium.
With 43 cm long telescopic handle and black net.
8 cm short thermometer specifically for nano tanks.
Food Sticks for Shrimps and Crustaceans
Main food for shrimps and crustaceans in freshwater.
High-quality food sticks containing a lot of protein with the addition of essential vitamins and with astaxanthin for richer colours.
Feeding recommendations: 2-3 times daily of small amounts that can be consumed by the animals within 1-2 minutes.
Plastic roots with suction, can be populated with real or natural plants.
