Black alder cones (alnus glutinosa) 50g
When receiving this product you will get 50g (or multiple if ordered bulk deals) of black alder cones enclosed in a plastic zip bag - these have been soaked so they will sink quicker to the bottom of your tank.
The alder cones release tannins into your tank creating black water which is beneficial to most shrimps and south american fish including discus,tetras,corys etc.. They also have anti fungal properties and the humins which leach out will also help feed live plants.
This product performs in the same way as cappata leaves softening the water (they increase the chances of spawning many amazonian fish) as well as creating black water conditions.
A single 50g bag will treat approximately 220 litres of water.

Alder cones are the catkins of black alder trees (Alnus glutinosa). These trees naturally occur in Europe but are also an introduced species in many parts of the United Stated and Canada.

Wildlife – Alder provides many benefits to wildlife. The pollen from the catkin is an early source of pollen for bees, and if the branches are above a stream or river, the seeds are a food source for fish. Alder is a good species for reforestation, and provide excellent shelter for wildlife in wet areas.
