Tantora Nano Bamboo Charcoal is an interesting and useful product, because it performs the dual roles of removing undesirable substances from the water, while releasing many minerals to water that good for aquarium shrimp and fish. And its unusual form factor, a 2" X 1.5" tubular shape, provides a natural hiding place for shrimp and fry. You can even attach mosses to it to create a cool hangout for your shrimps and small fishes!
Tantora Nano Bamboo Charcoal can release Negative ions that will absorb metabolic products from the water, such as Ammonia. It will also release Calcium, Potassium, and Magnesium, all of which are important to shrimp health.
The recommended quantity to use is 1 piece of Tantora Bamboo Charcoal for every 5 gallons of aquarium capacity. Replacement is recommended at least every two months. To use, you can simply rinse repeatedly under fresh water. The tube will gradually absorb water and sink over the course of several days, so you may want to weigh it down with stones or driftwood. If you'd like to speed up the process, you can boil it in fresh water for 30-60 minutes.
