The bark of the Indian almond tree (Terminalia catappa) from Sri Lanka does not only serve as great hideout for small shrimps, it also gives off tannins to the water, with a very positive effect. A natural product that can be used in manifold ways.


  • Natural decoration with a practical use
  • Provides shrimps, small snails and fish with places to hide and protection
  • Especially rich in natural tannins. Their astringent effect naturally protects mucous membranes
  • Mild disinfectant, prevents infections
  • Virtually unlimited storage life as long as it stays dry
  • This portion of bark is sufficient for approx. 1000 l of tank water


Use 1-2 pieces of bark per 100 l of tank water. After a few hours, the bark pieces will sind to the ground. After approx. 3 weeks, all the tannins have been released. Then you can either exchange the bark for a new piece, or you can leave it inside your tank as permanent decoration.
