You will receive either 10 or 30 giant alder cones. Giant alder cones are the same as alder cones just a larger variety. The giant alder cones will release more tannins into the water. These cones are very similar to Indian Almond Leaves and act in a similar way. The cones are beneficial to shrimp, bettas, Apistogrammas and Corydoras species for their healing properties and ability to lower the Ph.
Only took one in my 5, 10 and 15 gallon to slightly darken the water, and only needed two of them in my 36 gallon.
Very pleased, after boiling you have a pot of very dark tannins water, but my tank is river minnows I caught, so I’m saving this water for future use. Drained the cones and can’t wait to give my shrimp more hiding spots from the minnows
I do like how dark my water got from the tannins, I absolutely love the natural look in my tank!!!
Really good size for Alder Cones. They are in wonderful condition. Thank you!
