You LOVE the "Mokha Pod" sections, but a lot of you wanted to see "full" versions, not halves...So, we did a little searching and were able to source a small inventory of partially split specimens, and they make us smile, because they look like they're biting something...almost comical!
Small fishes and shrimp will forage and even hide among them, making them a functional and aesthetic asset to your aquarium or vivarium!
They range in size from about 2.25"-2.5"(5.71-6.35cm) in length, and about 1.25" to 1.5"(3.17-3.81cm) wide. They're a dense little pod with an interesting, "nut-like" outer shell and a woody interior. Split Mokha Pods can really help you evoke the appearance of a tropical stream, replete with fallen seeds and such.
We include 10 pieces in a package. For a "deeper dive" on this botanical, check out our recent edition of "The Tint!"
PREPARATION: We find that boiling them for at least 45 minutes to an hour is needed to get them waterlogged enough to sink. On occasion, these pods may close back up following submersion; they can be gently pried back open if desired.
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!
