Dried Banana Stems
Dried banana stems make a great addition to any shrimp tank or for use as botanical litter for the bottom of freshwater aquariums. Boil before use to help them sink, or allow them to float for a day or two and they will sink on their own as they saturate with water. Banana stems will last for a month or two before they need to be replaced. Provides a great source of bio film and a food source for small microorganisms such as infusoria. A 4 oz bag contains approximately 40 stems, and an 8 oz bag 80 stems on average.
