Frogbit is an essential part of any shrimp tank for the following reasons:
i) The root hairs catch all kinds of debris and detritus and hold a lot of bacteria and tiny fauna
ii) This microenvironment helps accelerate the conversion and absorption of ammonia, nitrites, and nitrates in the tank
iii) This also helps control algae, which in turn helps stimulate moss and plant growth
iv) It reduces the need for frequent water changes
v) It provides shelter for shrimp and a perfect snack when they are hungry
Size: Starter bundle for one tank (2-3 pods)
Instructions: Our Frogbit is 100% pest free guaranteed. We use it in all our breeder tanks instead of leaves or other natural décor. Unlike leaves, Frogbit acts as a natural water filter and it enhances moss and plant growth, which is key to creating optimum breeding conditions in shrimp tanks. You only need to cover less than 1/4 of the tank surface for optimum effect, however you will notice a big difference in shrimp activity and plant growth after just adding 2-3 Frogbit in a tank. Allow some time for the Frogbit to adjust to your tank lighting, you will know when they are adjusted once the roots start to grow longer.
