Tina's Review of Alder Cones

I like the look they give my tanks, so little. They also seem to interest my little Ram Cichlid as he is always pecking away at one. I've heard that they are beneficial to your tanks because they release tannins which can lower the pH in my tanks, so that is why I purchased them. They may have tinted my water a tad bit, but I'm not sure because I also have a big wood piece in my tank. I don't mind a slightly tinted tank (as long as my parameters are correct) because it looks more natural to me. That's my story and I'm sticking to it.
