We love the idea of simulating various unusual biotopes, and here is a pack that will help you recreate the very cool "morichals" of South America, a unique biotope, with numerous Moriche palm trees and riparian vegetation. These bodies of water swell with seasonal rains, and are surprisingly diverse, with tannin-stained water brimming with life. You'll find numerous characins, Apistogramma, and even various catfishes in this fascinating environment.
We were so taken with this habitat that we recently did a write up on it in our blog, "The Tint!"
All sorts of palm leaves, fruits, and other plant materials fall into these waters, providing sustenance for fishes, and enriching the habitat. We were so taken with the idea of recreating this biotope that we created a pack of botanicals selected specifically to mimic the materials often found in these waters. We think you'll love the diversity, texture, and "tint" that they will bring!
This cool pack provides a nice diversity of materials, which will give you a great "jump start" for an aquarium up to 50 U.S. gallons in size. Combine with a sandy substrate and a few selected pieces of driftwood, and you've got a truly unique aquarium! If you're really adventurous, you can create a riparium, with marginal plants growing in the fantastic Aqua Verdi Riparium Planters!
The "Vibrante Morichal" pack includes 4 "Flor Rio Pods", 2 of the exotic and interesting "Rio Fruta", 5 leaf-like "Mariposa Pods", 4 "Lampada Pods", 3 "Capsula Pods", 3 unique "Concha Pods", 3 Coco Curls, and 2 of our popular "Savu Pods", and 1 "Rio Passaro" Pod- all in one of our famous jute bags!
When used alone, or combined with our other packs or an "a la carte" selection of aquatic botanicals, you can create a unique and diverse aquascape, offering your fishes hiding places, grazing opportunities, and, of course, "the tint!"
NOTE: As these are natural products, the exact appearance of the items you receive will differ slightly from this shown in the photo. The photo serves to give you an idea 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!
NOT FOR HUMAN CONSUMPTION.
