We keep shrimps including high end one and we have tried n tested our products before introducing to you, therefore our photos are always with shrimps Shrimp mineral balls contain more over 30 different trace minerals, that are continuously release over the period upto 2 years. The balls are made with tourmaline, a crystal boron silicate mineral compound with elements such as calcium, magnesium, sodium, potassium. The balls act as physical reaction rather than chemical reaction. Providing the initial electric static charge needed for the bacteria to start growing, by generating negative ions to the water & electrolyse bigger molecule group of water into smaller, therefore the balls can eliminate the peculiar smell of the water. Also reducing the formation of blue-green algae (cyano) in newly setup tank.The releasing activity depends on the pH of the tank water. The more acidic the water, the more minerals are released. For setting up new tank with active soil, it is best to add in these balls to maintain the pH and providing the trace elements & minerals to the water, thus supporting full biofauna & the microorganisms.Minerals & trace elements in the water can be reduced over time due to the active soil absorption, and the remineralisation of the new water during water change can cause fluctuation in the minerals level, and this can cause stress and molting problems in young or newly hatched shrimps. These balls continuosly release minerals to reduce these fluctuations.The balls also have the ability to absorb pollutant subtances, due to its elements compoundedDirection for use:6 balls for 50L tank water, evenly placed them across the substrate.Placing the balls together, is an ideal option to increase survival of newly hatched shrimps, due to natural hiding places with loads of minerals, biofilm available for the newborn.The balls will last up to 2 years, without the need to be maintained.
