Product Description

When choosing our  vegetable mix especially for shrimp, crabs and snails , a good mix was taken care of ... some leaves or chips are quite stable in the aquarium under water (eg Hokkaido), others (eg nettle) catch much faster, soft to become. Over a long period of time, the shrimp find leaves / chips in the appropriate "stage of maturity" and enthusiastically pounce on them.

In nature, leaves are generally an important food constituent of invertebrates, such as shrimp, crabs, crabs as well as snails. Specially shrimps usually come from smaller streams with trees on the riparian zone. Here, leaves, smaller branches and especially in the fall quite a number of foliage in the streams are registered, which then begin to decompose over time by bacetria and microorganisms and thus serve the shrimp as an important (often also overwhelming) food base ,

The various shrubs and vegetables and their leaves contain a variety of ingredients, such as minerals, tannins and humic substances, various oils, trace elements and much more. The metabolism of shrimps, crabs, crabs and others needs them for their metabolism, to strengthen the immune system, for a good digestion, or food utilization and other.


The 4-part vegetable mix contains the following content

  • Dandelion or nettle  (depending on the season, leaves, dried, 3g (approximately 10-15 leaves))
  • Hokkaido pumpkin  (chips, dried, 5g (approximately 20-30 pieces))
  • Zucchini  (chips, dried, 5g (about 15-20 pieces))
  • Spinach  (leaves, dried, 5 pcs.)


Application / Dosage
Each 20 liters of aquarium water about 1 - 3 leaves (depending on the size of the leaf) or a few more. Depending on the number of shrimp, for example. 

After the leaves have been eaten or completely decomposed, they can be renewed if necessary. 
For the Zucchini and Hokkaido chips we recommend to start with one chip per 10 shrimp and see how much is eaten. 
Chips left behind should be removed from the pool after a good 2-3 days, so as not to unnecessarily burden the water.

Our tip
At first, the dry leaves or chips float on the surface of the water, but they absorb more or less quickly and then sink to the bottom. 
If necessary, you can accelerate the process by brewing the dry leaves / chips with boiling water and allowing to infuse.
