Alder Cones For Shrimps and Aquarium Tanks

Alder cones are popular due to the fact that they contain tannin which has a positive impact on the condition and health of tank fish, they help in the first stages of some of the diseases. The cones have protective properties for roe. In spawning aquariums, the cones combine some proteins contained in water providing nourishment for alevin.

The alder cones are also popular amongst fish keepers due to their acidifying, lower pH in water and disinfectant properties. Although they disinfect water, they are harmless to delicate shrimps and crabs. The cones can also help get rid of algae. The black alder cones are perfect, when used in greater amounts, to create so-called ‘black water’ biotopes. Alder cones are especially recommended for aquariums with particular types of fish: Cichlid, Characidae and Loricariidae as they lower water pH. Black alder cones are also often used as decoration in smaller tanks such as shrimp tanks.
