When asked, “What is the most essential part to a successful shrimp tank?” we will always respond with three key factors: leaf matter, java moss, and a piece of driftwood.

Great

The leaves are doing great. I placed 2 in my 40 gallon along with some alder cones and I love the look it has brought to the tank. Hoping it helps with some fungus I have on two of my tetras which I’m trying to heal without meds. Time will tell. Thanks Flippers.
