Shirakura White Mineral Powder is a mixture of different substances, and serves for health and colour enhancement. It includes, for example, calcium carbonate, which prevents skinning problems and warrants for a health skin. Proteins, which are responsible for the bright, clear white stripes of the bee shrimps as well as the natural colorant Astaxanthin, which is extracted from a type f algae and is responsible for the shrimps' bright red, and several different minerals, vitamins and micronutrients. This powder is also recommended for baby shrimps, since the cells responsible for the shrimp's colour can only develop properly when the shrimps receive all these important substances from the very beginning. Only then will their colour remain just as bright until an advanced age.
For a 60 l aquarium, dust one level spoon of White Mineral Powder onto the water surface every three to four days, enabling the powder to distribute properly. The fine particles will sink down to the ground quickly and can then be ingested directly by the shrimps. Dosage varies depending on the stock of animals.
The range of products by Shirakura, designed to meet the needs of bee shrimps, includes substrate, basic feed and special rearing feed as well as several mineral water additives and conditioners. Together they create perfect ambient conditions, which are of great importance for the bee shrimps' health, growth, colourfulness and breeding.
