Anyone Tried Alder Cones?

gregoranddexter1816

SunGrow claims that they prevent fungal infections. However they are super expensive and I'm on a budget with my fish keeping (I mean with extra things not with anything i seriously need). I already use almond leafs and i enjoy them in both of my tanks. But i am trying to breed some ghost shrimp and currently (even in a breeder box) found quite a few dead from when they were born yesterday.

If you live somewhere that alder trees are native then it’s worth going to collect some on your own. I find them readily is swampy areas and along creek banks.

I don’t know how well they can prevent fungal infections but the shrimp do like picking biofilm off them. Just be sure not to use too many at once or you may shock them with parameter swings.

As to why your baby shrimp died, perhaps they starved or you may have shocked them during a water change? I can’t really say for sure.
