Giant alder cones

I do like how dark my water got from the tannins, I absolutely love the natural look in my tank!!!

Giant Alder Cones

They really are giant

I didn't realize how big they would be, my tanks were a nice strong tea color for awhile. But my shrimp love them and I actually like the way they look better than smaller alder cones.

Exactly what I wanted

For starters, I wouldn't call these giant- they are exactly the size you'd expect and fit just fine in nano tanks (my UNS 45U).

If you're looking for the blackwater look, these are the way to go. Just 2 of them in my 10G and by the end of the day the water was such a gorgeous rich brown. My shrimp have not left the cones alone since addition.

Definitely going to become a part of my regular restock order.
