AquaShrimp Powder Informations

  • Enriched soil especially designed for shrimp
  • The powder texture of AquaShrimp Powder will allow shrimp to lay juvenile shrimp and keep them at the surface of the substrate.
  • AquaShrimp Powder is porous enough to allow nitrifying bacteria to properly colonize the substrate and improve water quality
  • High temperature treatment (around 1200°C; 2192°F) gives its physical properties and allows it to be free of parasitic species which could contaminate the aquarium
  • AquaShrimp Powder is tested by an independent laboratory (microbiological, chemical, and radioactive tests)

How to use AquaShrimp Powder?

  • A bag is packaged in 3 liters / 3kg corresponding to a thickness of 5 cm for a 20 liter aquarium.
  • Using 150g (5.29 Oz.) of soil per liter (0.25 Gal) will grant the aquarium the best soil quantity needed.
