Heart Root

40 x 30 x 30 cm (Item No.:79007)

Product details

This gorgeous root will be “The Heart of the Aquarium” in your unique aquascape. This uniquely shaped and handcrafted aquarium decoration is made from natural roots and makes for a special eye-catcher in any aquarium. The Heart Root is designed for use in freshwater aquaria, and shrimps, for example, love to graze on the delicate branches. The special heart can also be planted with perching plants such as anubias, bucephalandra or mosses such as Java moss, giving it an even more natural look.

Expert hint: Before placing the wood in an aquarium that has already been established, we recommend soaking the wood in water for a few days beforehand and changing the water regularly. This will reduce any "bleeding" of the roots and also ensure that the roots do not float up.

Frequently asked questions

Whitish coatings may form on natural woods. These coatings are caused by bacteria that feed on carbon compounds in the fresh roots. As soon as these carbon compounds are used up, the growth of the bacteria will reduce and the white coating will dissolve. The coating is completely safe for the aquarium and harmless for the animals and plants. Some animal species, such as shrimps and snails, like to graze on this bacterial coating, helping it to disappear more quickly.
