How to Build Your Ecosystem With Aquarium Botanicals
Each species of aquatic botanical boasts an unique durability, tannin level, and ecosystem benefit depending upon its size and geographic location. Together, in harmony, they create layers of an ecosystem which allow an abundance of life to colonize the aquarium or bioactive enclosure. At Betta Botanicals, we hold our standards high. Every botanical that enters our HQ undergoes meticulous batch testing, and thorough inspection. We're committed to delivering top-notch quality. To further our eco-conscious mission, our products come in compostable pouches and labels, ensuring sustainability at every step. Enjoy a hassle-free experience, with free shipping on USA orders over $50 and simple yet detailed botanical preparation instructions.
Shrimp & Fish Safe Botanicals
The benefits of aquatic botanicals are not a function of an aesthetic. They offer a breadth of benefits that cater to all fish keepers, regardless of the number of years you have in this hobby. Whether you're a novice seeking the enriching properties of Indian Almond & Catappa Leaves or an expert relying on pH-reducing Macaranga Leaves, our curated selection of products range in function to exceed your needs. Our commitment to quality ensures the utmost safety for your aquatic and terrestrial companions. Our materials have undergone rigorous testing to ensure their safety, making them equally suitable for use with shrimp, frogs, geckos, lizards, and the like.
Aquarium Botanicals for Blackwater and Biotope Ecosystems
When you combine soft water and low levels of minerals with natural botanical elements you can replicate a blackwater habitat, and create an appealing ecosystem to many of the fish we keep in this hobby. Blackwater environments are known for their low pH, low TDS, and low levels of mineral content. We have curated natural botanical elements to help you lower the pH of you water, while also replicating the natural habitats of our most popular aquarium fish. Our most popular botanicals to lower the pH are Alder Cones, with our Blackwater Betta Tea Bags helping to re-tint the aquarium with fresh tannins. When your fish want to seek refuge, we also have aquatic botanicals that provide caves for spawning or resting in.
