Teddy Bear Cholla Wood

Product Description

Teddy Bear Cholla wood is identical to regular cholla wood although it is much thicker. The wood is quite rare as it takes more time for the cholla plants to reach the size needed to harvest such thick wood. 

Cholla wood is the skeleton of a cholla plant after it dies. The cholla wood is made up of a ton of holes and is hollow through the center which provides a natural cover for shrimp to hide. A big benefit of cholla wood is the fact that it grows biofilm which is a main food source for shrimp. It also releases tannins into the water, similarly to Indian Almond leaves and other natural products. Cholla wood is a softwood and will eventually break down in the aquarium. This can take many months and up to 2 years depending on size and thickness.

When added directly to an aquarium it will float and usually takes 24-48 hours to sink. To sink cholla wood immediately, it can be boiled for 2-5 minutes. Cool the wood before adding it directly to the aquarium. 

Key Features:

  • Shelter for Shrimp and Baby Shrimp
  • Creates Surface Area for Bio-film and Bacterial to Grow On
  • Releases Beneficial Tannin into the Water which Simulates the Natural Habitat of Shrimp
  • Natural Feeding Ground for Shrimp of all Types

All around this wood makes a great natural decoration with the dual purpose of shelter and a food source for shrimp.

Teddy Bear Cholla Wood

It won't stay sunk without weight and it's been almost 5 days but other than that amazing. I saw an improvement in my tank chemistry almost immediately. Will buy again and would recommend

Hi there Jeff,

I'm a beginner shrimp owner.
That filter did not work in my shrimp tank due to my stupidness!!
