Tannin "Geo Pack" (66-Piece Aquatic Botanical Sampler Pack)


We have so many customers who tell us to make up packs for Geophagus and other species which comprise that crazy group of South American cichlids collectively known as "Eartheaters" that we couldn't resist! Here's a cool collection of aquatic botanicals that was selected to help you create an interesting habitat for these tough customers.

We've selected a variety of durable, long-lasting pods, which will stand up to this group's legendary excavation activities. We've also included some "softer" specimens, which tend to be more attractive to these fishes as "grazing material".  From an aesthetic standpoint, this pack will give you a lot of great options to create a biotope-themed tank to meet the needs of these fishes. The botanicals we selected are a perfect blend of texture and color, and help create a long-lasting and interesting substrate. We figure that it could work in tanks up to 100 gallons/400 liters, depending upon the level of "coverage" you're looking for.

Since these fishes are typically kept in larger aquariums, we've included a generous selection of materials to really let you do your thing!  In fact, it's the largest pack we offer! This  pack includes 10 "Lampada Pods", 8 "Mariposa Pods", 3 "Jungle Pods", 12 "Capsula Pods", 4 "Flor RioPods", 3 "Helix Pods", 3 "Teardrop Pods", 1 "Ra Cama Pod"(we substitute with 3 "Savu Pods" when these are not available), 3 "Terra Sorrindo" pods, 6 "Tartaruga Pods" (we will occasionally substitute with extra "Terra Sorrindo" Pods if these are not available), 2 "Ceu Fruta", 8 Coco Curls, and 3 "Encontro Pods!"

We think this is a cool mix of "aquatic botanicals" that will enliven any tank with aesthetics, utility...and just a small touch of "The Tint" we love so much! And of course, it comes with one of our now-legendary reusable Tannin jute drawstring bags! Since This group of fishes likes high water quality, it's imperative to go slowly and add these materials to an established aquarium gradually, to minimize significant and rapid changes to the water quality which can occur with a large influx of botanical materials. 


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!



NOTE: The photo is for illustrative purposes. As these are natural products, expect variation in the appearance of the botanicals that you will receive.
