The Mini Dried Lotus are great addition to any shrimp tank. They are part of the Lotus plant but they are much smaller, they only average about 0.75"-1" in diameter! They provide many small hideouts for shrimp to hide and provide a large surface area for biofilm to grow. They also release tannin overtime which contains beneficial properties.
We sell these Mini Lotus Pods in 1 oz bags, each bag should contain about 22-25 Pods. We recommend boiling these pods for at least an hour to help them sink as they are pretty buoyant when they are totally dry.
We recommend boiling all botanicals before use in your aquarium. This is good practice when adding anything new to your aquarium.
