Pro Shrimp's comment: This is a new active shrimp soil similar to Red Bee Sand or Environment. Active soil lowers pH, GH and KH to a soft water environment ideal for Caridina shrimp. Shrimp King Active Soil is espcially nice, because it's of dark black colour and very attractive. Additionally it contains fulvic and humic acids offering a welcome addition to your tank's water. This soil does not contain any ammonia and can be stocked very quickly.

  • Reduces ph and gh, creating the ideal living conditions for softwater shrimp
  • Particularly suitable for species that require soft, slightly acidic water, especially bee shrimp
  • With valuable humic and fulvic acids, essential minerals and trace elements
  • Excellent filter capacity for healthy, crystal-clear water
  • Twice-baked - lasting water stability

Shrimp King Active Soil consists of up to 100% natural raw materials. Produced from a variety of carefully selected natural soils, it provides essential minerals and trace elements, which promote the health and growth of shrimps. Shrimp King Active Soil has been developed especially for the successful keeping and breeding of shrimps. It is particularly suited to all species that like soft, slightly acidic water, especially bee shrimps, such as the popular Crystal Red, Red Bee, Tiger Bees and Shadow Shrimp. It adjusts the water to be more like that which soft water species are accustomed to in their natural habitats. As a natural ion exchanger, it reduces the pH and stabilises it at a slightly acidic level (approx. pH 6.0-6.5). At the same time it reduces the carbonate hardness – down to close to approx. 0-2 °d CH depending on the water source - and thus makes the water considerably softer. It also serves as a natural source of humic and fulvic acids, without discolouring the water.
