Do you want to create a natural and healing environment for your aquarium inhabitants?

Organic Alder Cones are perfect for this! These tiny little pinecones are a gorgeous addition to your aquarium, providing natural food, shelter, and water conditioning for shrimp, snails, and fish fry.

Not only do Alder cones look great, but they also have healing properties, releasing tannins and lowering the pH of the water.

Plus, as they are organic and untreated, they will eventually break down in the aquarium, creating a natural habitat that your fish and shrimp will love.

FEATURES:

🐟 Natural Food & Shelter: Organic Alder Cones provide natural food, shelter, and water conditioning for shrimp, snails, and fish fry.

🐠 Healing Properties: Alder cones release tannins and lower the pH of the water, making them the perfect addition to your aquarium.

🐙 Organic and Untreated: As Organic Alder Cones are organic and untreated, they will eventually break down in the aquarium, creating the natural environment fish and Inverts need.

SPECIFICATIONS:

  • Size: ~1/2"
  • Color: Deep Brown
  • Material: Alder (Alnus spp.)

HOW IT WORKS: (Crazy simple!)

1. Pop the Alder Cones into your aquarium.

2. Allow the tannins and pH-lowering abilities to work their magic.

3. Watch as your shrimp, snails, and fish fry enjoy the natural food and shelter.


FAQ:

Q: How long will an Alder cone last?

A: Depending on the thickness, a single Alder cone can last up to a year.


Q: Is it safe to use many Alder cones in my aquarium What about with other botanicals such as Cholla wood, Driftwood, and Cattappa Leaves?

A: Yes, Organic Alder Cones are completely safe to use in your aquarium along with these other botanical items. You can't really have too many, but you may find the 'tea staining' of your water to be too much. This phenomenon is desirable for a lot of hobbyists though! It's called a 'Blackwater' aquarium.


Q: Are Alder cones safe for scaleless fish?

A: Yes, the tannins and pH-lowering abilities present in Alder cones make them a great choice for scale-less fish, like Corydoras.


Q: Do I need to prep these before adding them to my aquarium?

A: Maybe give them a quick rinse. These Alder cones and acorns are full of air pockets, and so will float for up to two days when you first add them to an aquarium. You can mitigate this (and remove much of the tannins) by boiling it for up to 5 minutes. Let them cool, and plop it in your fish tank!
