Description

Control discoloration and keep newborn shrimp safe with Fluval Plant & Shrimp Stratum Plant Care. Newborn shrimp need a place to hide and escape from predators until they are grown. Fluval Plant & Shrimp Stratum Plant Care is an ideal substrate that provides baby shrimp refuge, a nutrient-rich anchoring for plants and vast porous surface for nitrifying bacteria. It does not discolor water and helps control organic discoloration that occurs when natural driftwood is used. The light and small composition is ideal for shrimp to climb on.

Key Benefits
  • Ideal substrate for freshwater aquariums, controls organic discoloration and keeps newborn shrimp safe
  • Mineral rich volcanic soil does not discolor water
  • Stimulates strong plant growth
  • Provides newborn shrimp refuge from predators
  • Helps plants and nitrifying bacteria flourish, and promotes neutral to mildly acidic pH

    Perfect amount

    By Chelsea on Jan 4, 2021

    This small bag is difficult to find but it's the perfect amount for my 5 gallon tank. Definitely rinse first to get rid of the excess dust, as directed on the bag.

    why is it so expensive

    By Mj2009 on Sep 17, 2020

    It’s a great substrate but for the size of the bag it should not be so expensive I mean a 17 lb bag for $40 come on would not recommend if your on a budget

    Fantastic substrate!

    By aquariumdad on Sep 10, 2020

    Absolutely amazing substrate. It does somewhat cloud the water but that shouldn’t matter as you’re cycling the tank.

    Does what it says

    By Jhamm on Jun 11, 2020

    lowered and softened my water. Shrimp love it. After 1 water change and a week of cycling it was ready to go. I'll be purchasing more in the future.

    Perfect for planted tank and shrimp

    By Lauren on Sep 22, 2019

    This stuff is great if planted tanks or raising shrimp is your goal. I'd recommend rinsing it before putting in the tank & you do not want to use a gravel vac with it.

    Fluval is king

    By Tapia on Aug 30, 2019

    I did alot of searching and research looking for something specific for Plants and shrimp. Lone and behold that was right in the description for this substrate. Chewy just makes it affordable to get.

    Excellent!!!

    By Soryu on Apr 2, 2019

    The shipping speed was exceptional. For 17 dollars, I would’ve expected a bigger bag but I am still satisfied.

    Holds up well

    By Heather on Mar 4, 2018

    I have dwarf tears, anubias, java moss, and guppy grass in my tank with no co2 added. I've had the tank about a year now and the pellets are holding their shape and providing for my plants really well even after this long. everything is growing like crazy and the natural look of this product compared to gravel has really pulled my tank together. I would definitely recommend this product to friends. My only advice I didn't have when buying this is to rinse it before adding to tank to reduce cloudiness.
