Dried "Terra Sorrindo" Pods (Package of 6)

Another great palm-derived botanical to mix in with your leaf litter. They are clean, free of pesticides or other contaminants, and are carefully collected and sun dried. 

"Terra Sorrindo" have a cool, light-colored leaf-like form on one side, and a "leathery", woody appearance and texture on the other side. Almost look like a little potato chip! They make great little sheltered areas for shrimp, dwarf cichlids, catfish, and even some killies! They're perfect as a "supporting cast member" in your leaf litter biotope. Another perfect natural "prop" to simulate the tropical stream biotope, providing foraging areas for fish, and wonderful aesthetic benefits for you!

Just like with our other pods, these are perfect to help cover open substrate and supplement leaf litter to simulate Amazonian stream bottoms.  They're about 3" in length, and 2" wide on average.

These pods will leach a lot of tannins into the water initially, and will continue to exude some noticeable amount of tint from tannins into the water over the long term. You'll need to prepare them in order to waterlog them, because they 're 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- boil them for at least 20 minutes before use.

"Terra Sorrindo" are really cool aquatic botanicals, and they offer a great combination of aesthetics, form, and function for aquarium 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!
