Dennerle SK Shrimp Active Soil 4L

ShrimpKing Active Soil consists of up to 100% natural raw materials. Produced from a variety of carefully selected natural soils, it provides essential minerals and trace elements, which promote the health and growth of shrimps. ShrimpKing Active Soil has been developed especially for the successful keeping and breeding of shrimps. It is particularly suited to all species that like soft, slightly acidic water, especially bee shrimps, such as the popular Crystal Red, Red Bee, Tiger Bees and Shadow Shrimp. It adjusts the water to be more like that which soft water species are accustomed to in their natural habitats. As a natural ion exchanger it reduces the pH and stabilises it at a slightly acidic level (approx. pH 6.0-6.5). At the same time it reduces the carbonate hardness – down to close to approx. 0-2 °d CH depending on the water source - and thus makes the water considerably softer. It also serves as a natural source of humic and fulvic acids, without discolouring the water.

Features:
• The irregular shaped grains, with a diameter of 1-4 mm also give a natural appearance
• The dark black colouring provides excellent contrast with the vibrant colours of the shrimps
• Porous surface for the settlement of important cleansing bacteria
• Also extremely well suited to use with substrate filter systems
• Does not discolour water
• Promotes growth – bacteria, single-cell organisms, single-cell algae and other microorganisms - as valuable, natural nutrition, especially for young shrimps
• Excellent filter capacity for crystal-clear water
• Binds harmful substances for healthy living conditions
• Also ideal for all tropical fish and plant species that like soft, slightly acidic water
• Does not promote algae
• The use of ShrimpKing Bee Salt in combination with osmosis water extends the useful life of ShrimpKing Active Soil

Description:
  • Reduces pH and CH, creating the ideal living conditions for tropical shrimps
  • Particularly suitable for species that require soft, slightly acidic water, especially bee shrimps
  • With valuable humic and fulvic acids, essential minerals and trace elements
  • Excellent filter capacity for healthy, crystal-clear water
  • Twice-baked – lasting water stability
  • High quality – Made in Japan
  • 100% natural
  • With fertile volcanic soil
  • Substrate Size: 1-4 mm
  • Ideal in combination with CO2 fertilization


Note: Not suitable for shrimps that require slightly harder or slightly alkaline water, e.g. All species from the Sulawesi lakes.

Shrimp substrate

PROS
Keeps ph in range for certain species of shrimp.
CONS
Don't use if dried out, it turns to mud.
REVIEW
I bought this substrate specifically to keep crystal red shrimp. This keeps the ph lower like the shrimp like but I have to monitor the ph carefully as the co2 also drags the ph down ad well. You can also grow plants in it as well. Again plants that can tolerate a lower ph.
