Plants will be rinsed but may contain snails and duckweed as all these plants come from working tanks.
NOTE: These plants are not frost hardy.
Plant Tip 1: Alum dip is a great way to get rid of pests on plants, just remember to soak the plant in fresh water for a few hours after treatment.
Dose 3 tablespoons (Aluminum sulfate) per 4 liters of water, leave to soak for 3 or 4 hours then add the plants to a bucket of freshwater for another 3-4 hours.
Aluminum sulfate can be bought in the spice section of most grocery stores.
Plant Tip 2: Avoid using Hornwort in a soft water shrimp tank, while this plant initially does well the older parts always die off and you can end up with a mass of rotting mess in your tank.
Plant Tip 3: Avoid Water Sprite aka Indian Water Fern, while this plant does look stunning in a tank it can actually over run a tank very fast, it also puts out thick roots which can be a pain to remove when using an active substrate. You want to avoid disturbing activated shrimp soils as much as possible.
I have no idea why I have been buying shrimp anywhere else but from mark. Just received my painted red’s today (Wednesday) in the U.K. These were dispatched on Monday. Super fast delivery and they all survived and look happy. Thanks for the extra shrimp too ���.
I will be buying again that is for certain.
Thank you Mark.
Marks Shrimp Tanks
As an shrimp keeper I have a wealth of knowledge dating back almost 30 years and I have been breeding and keeping freshwater aquarium shrimp such as Red Cherry Shrimp, Crystal Red Shrimp, Taiwan Bee Shrimp for about 10 years.
Early in 2016 I decided to start my own YouTube channel called Marks Shrimp Tanks which you can find here https://goo.gl/JMPwor
I started my own channel to help others learn how to keep freshwater aquarium shrimp and I hope I can spread my passion for this wonderful hobby.
