Pro Shrimp's comment: Mineral Rocks are a great addition to every shrimp tank, slowly releasing a constant supply of essential minerals into the water.
In Japan, the powder is mixed into the substrate as soil additive when the tank is set up. Fill a substrate layer into your tank, cover it thinly with Mironekuton® and then add the rest of the substrate. After the tank has been decorated and filled with water, a little Mironekuton® is sprinkled on the water surface so that it spreads evenly in the entire tank when sinking.MIRONEKUTON® Natural Deep Sea Mineral ミロネクトン The original Mironekuton® from Japan, only found in a single region there, is exceptionally rich in natural minerals and trace elements. Highly popular in Japanese with shrimp breeders and plant tank keepers, especially in combination with soil substrates, as it significantly enhances the all-important microbiology (bacteria, accompanying fauna). Millions of years ago, the remains of fish, plankton, algae, seaweed and other marine organisms sunk to the bottom of the sea, where they were metabolised by microorganisms, and under the special environmental conditions in this region working hand in hand with the high pressure exerted by tectonic faults on the Pacific Plate this singular material consisting of more than 66 different minerals was formed.
What purpose do minerals and trace elements serve? Minerals and trace elements are essential for all organisms as they play an important part in many metabolic processes and are crucial for the production of enzymes (e.g. in the moulting process of dwarf shrimp). A lack of the essential minerals will result in deficiencies, problems and even diseases. Mironekuton® serves as an important mineral depot and creates the most favourable conditions for bacteria (in the ground). These bacteria do not only make the largest part of the minerals available for plant roots but are also important food, e.g. for baby shrimplets and other small organisms. Another part of the minerals is directly taken up by your tank inhabitants or dissolves in the water and is then distributed in the water column where it is available for them. By the way, the body is unable to produce minerals, they must be ingested actively (e.g. in the food) or passively (e.g. through the skin or exoskeleton). Mironekuton® is used as mineral supplement and water conditioner during the cycling phase of the tank and thus can benefit the development of the important microorganisms in the filter and the ground from the beginning. When the tank runs, Mironekuton® gives off minerals constantly and thus provides the inhabitants and the useful helpers in your tank with the minerals they so desperately require. In addition to all these positive characteristics, Mironekuton® stabilizes the pH value and thus prevents dangerous pH plunges. It sustains total hardness (GH), improves the water quality as well as the ion exchange capacity and provides for better plant growth and root formation, enhancing photosynthesis and the formation of oxygen. It absorbs noxious substances, makes the water crystal clear and removes odours.
