Description

These are the seed heads of water lotus plants. I use these in my aquariums but they are great for other small pet habitats as well as crafts. in fish & shrimp tanks they provide multiple hiding places for fry & small invertebrates as well as tons of surface area for grazing bio-film. The pods are also a food source themselves as they break down. Pods are available in small to medium size measuring approximately 2.5" to 3.5" in diameter & large to extra large pods measuring 4" to 5"+ in diameter. All pods are selected at random based on the size ordered. My supply of large/extra large size pods is very limited. These are a natural product, please expect some imperfections as well as variance to the color, size, & shape. A few pods may have some seeds left in them. These pods are very buoyant initially, requiring some extra preparation to get them to sink when using them in an aquarium. Try boiling the pods for at least 40-45 minutes (60+ minutes for the larger pods) followed by soaking in clean water for a day or 2. I like to poke a couple small holes in the base of the pod with a thick skewer or mini size screw driver to help get them water logged quicker. Once they soften up, you can gently squeeze the base while holding them underwater to help release the trapped air in the pods & replace it with water so they sink. All of my botanicals are intended for ornamental aquarium, terrarium, paludarium, etc, & craft use only. They are not intended for human consumption.
