Cholla Wood


The AQUABITS accessory range offers key items you need to support your aquarium.  

Cholla wood is soft and breaks down over time. During this process all kinds of beneficial processes happen. Tannins are released into the water which helps imitate the natural habitat of many shrimp species. Most importantly, though, tannins have antibacterial and antifungal properties which help protect your shrimp against disease.

As cholla wood breaks down a layer of biofilm forms on it. This makes it the perfect place for shrimp to forage. Because cholla wood is hollow and holey it makes a great hiding place for shrimp, which means you can use it as a natural looking alternative to ceramic shrimp flats. Shrimp will especially appreciate it while molting, when they're very vulnerable and like to be able to retreat to a safe place.
