SHIRAKURA RED BEE SAND
Shirakura Red Bee Sand was developed especially for breeding bee shrimps and has constantly been improved by Takayuki Shirakura in cooperation with its producer
This substrate, produced in a special procedure and composed of different types of burnt soil, boasts the characteristic of permanently lowering water values, which are important for breeding. Among those values are the water hardness (KH) and the pH-value. For breeding, a water hardness (KH) of 0-2 and a pH-value of less than 7 are desired in order to avoid the formation of ammonium is wished for.
Shirakura Red Bee Sand does not contain any fertilizer additives whatsoever and is therefore absolutely harmless for your shrimps.
