Specialized aquarium substrate with small granulation shrimp for nano tanks and small, delicate foreground plants.

ShrimpSand POWDER is a scientifically developed substrate. Created on the basis of natural volcanic soil. Sintered with other necessary materials and alkaline elements, it creates a porous, soft structure, ideal for the development of natural bacterial flora. The unique ShrimpSand technology protects the health, proper development and safety of shrimp. This is done by absorbing ammonia and pollutants. It also clarifies water by absorbing its turbidity and discoloration. ShrimpSand adjusts the hardness of the water used, and adjusts the pH buffer, stabilizing its value at the ideal pH 6.5 for shrimp. POWDER is a low granularity substrate for nano tanks and foreground.

Shrimp Sand Features:

Water clarification: restores water clarity, removes colors and turbidity caused, for example, by wooden decorative elements inside the aquarium;

Stabilizes the pH of the water: it softens the water to levels appropriate for the natural areas of most species of shrimp.
