"Encontro Pods"


These attractive botanicals are pretty respectable in size; ranging from about 2.75"- 4" (6.98-10.16cm) in length, and about 1.25" to 2" (3.17-5.08cm) wide. They're a dense, surprisingly heavy little pod with an interesting, leaf-like appearance, highly variable in color. 

Small fishes and shrimp take to them easily, and you'll find your shrimp foraging among them, and small fry will occasionally speak refuge in them, much as they do with leaves! They give off a lot of tannins and can really help tint the water! These are durable and long-lasting botanicals with many aesthetic applications!

PREPARATION: We recommend boiling them for at least half an hour to get them waterlogged enough to sink. It could take longer, depending on the particular pod! As with our other pods, the prep time is totally worth it for the aesthetic reward that these bring to your biotope.  


ORIGIN: Brazil


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!
