Product Description: Miyagi's Shrimp Stix are perfect for promoting a diverse and healthy diet for your aquatic shrimp. The green sticks are packed full of spirulina and vegetables and are supplemented with calcium to help your shrimp and snails build their shells. 'Shrimply' put one stick into your aquarium 1-2 times a week, in addition to the other shrimp food you provide (we recommend our 'Shrimp Nettles' too!).
Remove once fully consumed. Not for Human Consumption.
Quantities: Each order comes with 15c of the selected variety, packaged inside a fully compostable ziplock bag (simply just recycle the paper label inside). The vegetables on each stick are Organic, pre-rinsed, and dried to preserve freshness. Store in a cool dry place. Not for human consumption.
It entirely depends on your water chemistry. Soft water will allow the botanicals to lower your pH more than if you have medium or hard water. At Betta Botanicals HQ our tap water is Very Hard, ( 350+ppm) and we do not notice a change in water pH unless using Alder Cones or Macaranga leaves.
White growths are the colonization of biofilms and fungi in the aquarium. We call this the 'goo phase' and it is totally natural. Botanicals are fuel for the ecosystem and the populations of bacteria and fungi will naturally rise and fall.
100% yes. Our botanicals are for aquariums terrariums, vivariums and all natural enclosures.
We DO NOT recommend using botanicals that these fish can ingest. Botanicals like casuarina cones, small alder cones, and live oak are not suited for these animals. Large aquarium leaves like Indian almond, loquat, and jackfruit are preferred.
We recommend letting aquarium leaves and seed pods entirely break down into beneficial detritus. You can absolutely remove them after they don’t release tannins anymore, you just don’t get all potential benefits of leaving them in the aquarium.

We strongly recommend following the botanical preparation instructions. These instructions ensure that any 'potential contaminants' are removed if they find their way onto your leaves, bark, and seed pods.
Best aquarium and terrarium botanicals by far, always doing bulk orders from Bettabotanicals whenever I need a resupply!
These last a good week (give or take) in my aquarium and I constantly see shrimp and snails grazing on them! They build a really nice biofilm if some portion of the stick has gone a while without being munched on. I noticed my shrimp specifically REALLY like that biofilm.
My shrimp and snails go BONKERS for these stix!! I will definitely buy again!
