Especially betta and shrimp breeders make use of the acid tannin which the alder cones release to the tank water. As tests have shown, a single cone already will tint the water brown which indicates the humid acids. Dosage of Alder Cones The tanning agents effect the pH value and will lower it – the exact scale depends on the number and quality of cones, and on the carbonate hardness of the water. It is also possible to make an infusion with boiled water and only add the cold extract without cones later. Admittedly, the quality of alder cones differs as it is a natural product, and the percentage of tannin can vary. So, if you bought cheap stuff, they might not have great effect on the pH. Be careful with overdosing, as shrimp need time to adapt! Take your time and do not throw all cones into the tank at once. I recommend to always run a test. Dosage Examples vary from 4 alder cones on 1000 ml (1 L) water lowered the pH from 7.0 to 6.41 alder cone for 10 L water Effects and Benefits of Alder Cones In a lower pH, the bacterial density also is low, which can help prevent bacterial infections and hatch shrimp eggs properly. Besides, fungi also grow worse in an acid surrounding. So, we have this reaction chain: the alder cones release humid acids to the waterthe humid acids will lower the hardness and therefore the pHa lower pH reduces the density of bacteria and fungi (it is supposed that acids can pass cell membranes of bacteria easier in a pH ~6 and effect their duplicating and growths) Check out my other items!
