A beautiful little botanical that looks like a miniature Manta Rays- hence the name! They range in size from 1.5"-2.5"(3.81-6.35cm) in circumference. They have a hard exterior with a soft interior surface that will dissolve over time.
They are perfect for utilizing as a supplement to leaf litter, or along with other botanicals as a diminutive, yet very noticeable "supporting player" in a "substrate enrichment" role. They will attract the attention of your ornamental shrimp and Plecos, which will rasp at their slightly softer interior and the biofilms they recruit.
PREPARATION: You can boil them for 20 minutes or so, followed by a brief freshwater soak. Or, you can simply put them in a container of warm freshwater, and they typically will saturate and sink on their own after a day or two.
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!
