Fluval® Shrimp Stratum is the ideal substrate for shrimp and planted aquariums. The substrate’s light, non-compacting, porous structure is highly beneficial to nitrifying bacteria which rapidly colonize the vast porous surface, providing optimal water quality for shrimp.
Shrimp Stratum also provides newborn shrimp with excellent refuge, a safe place to hide from predators until they are large enough to emerge.
In addition, Shrimp Stratum helps plants flourish as their roots easily spread and take advantage of available nutrients. The use of NUTRAFIN® Plant Fertilizer Sticks and NUTRAFIN® Plant Gro in conjunction with Shrimp Stratum will help ensure a full complement of essential macro and micro nutrients.
The inherent properties of Fluval® Shrimp Stratum will help support a neutral to slightly acidic pH that is ideal for most shrimp and plant species. This highly attractive substrate will not discolor water and helps control organic discoloration usually present when natural driftwood is used.
