Cholla wood is the skeleton of a Cholla Cactus, it is harvested after the Cactus dies. Each piece is unique and it's distinctive holes provide great hiding spots for shrimp and provide a media for biofilm to grow on. It also releases tanins into the water which is beneficial to all shrimp types. The wood will disintegrate over many months depending on the size and thickness of the wood. We offer Cholla pieces that are 4 inches or 6 inches in length.
We recommend boiling all botanicals before use in your aquarium. This is good practice when adding anything new to your aquarium, the wood will also sink a lot quicker after it is boiled.
This cool looking all-natural wood is a great addition to any aquarium.
