Another great palm-derived botanical to mix in with your leaf litter. "Terra Sorrindo" have a cool, light-colored leaf-like form on one side, and a "leathery", woody appearance and texture on the other side. They almost look like a little potato chip!
Another perfect natural "prop" to simulate the tropical stream biotope, providing foraging areas for fish, and wonderful aesthetic benefits! Perfect to help cover open substrate and supplement leaf litter. They're about 3" (7.62cm) in length, and 2" (5.08cm) wide on average.
PREPARATION: "Terra Sorrindo" are incredibly light, and float like mad when first immersed! You can either waterlog them with a 2-3 day room temperature freshwater soak, or better yet- boil them for at least 20 minutes before use.
NOTE: These are a natural product, and display variation in color, size, and texture. Each pod is unique! The photo serves as a reasonable representation of what to expect.
All of our aquatic botanicals are intended for ornamental aquarium or terrarium use only. Please use common sense and take the time to boil or soak all botanicals prior to using them, to reduce the possibility of problems. Always go slow when introducing any botanicals into your systems, so you can judge the effect they have on your fishes and plants. They are not intended for human consumption. DO NOT INGEST!
