Dennerle Shrimp King Active Soil
- The irregular shaped grains, with a diameter of 1-4 mm also give a natural appearance
- The dark black colouring provides excellent contrast with the vibrant colours of the shrimps
- Porous surface for the settlement of important cleansing bacteria
- Also extremely well suited to use with substrate filter systems
- Does not discolour water
- Promotes growth – bacteria, single-cell organisms, single-cell algae and other microorganisms - as valuable, natural nutrition, especially for young shrimps
- Excellent filter capacity for crystal-clear water
- Binds harmful substances for healthy living conditions
- Also ideal for all tropical fish and plant species that like soft, slightly acidic water
- Does not promote algae
- The use of ShrimpKing Bee Salt in combination with osmosis water extends the useful life of ShrimpKing Active Soil
ShrimpKing Active Soil consists of up to 100% natural raw materials. Produced from a variety of carefully selected natural soils, it provides essential minerals and trace elements, which promote the health and growth of shrimps.
ShrimpKing Active Soil has been developed especially for the successful keeping and breeding of shrimps. It is particularly suited to all species that like soft, slightly acidic water, especially bee shrimps, such as the popular Crystal Red, Red Bee, Tiger Bees and Shadow Shrimp.
It adjusts the water to be more like that which soft water species are accustomed to in their natural habitats. As a natural ion exchanger it reduces the pH and stabilises it at a slightly acidic level (approx. pH 6.0-6.5). At the same time it reduces the carbonate hardness – down to close to approx. 0-2 °d CH depending on the water source - and thus makes the water considerably softer.
It also serves as a natural source of humic and fulvic acids, without discolouring the water.

Damaged or Perished on arrival
We pride ourselves on the quality of our products, and will never knowingly send out sub-standard or faulty products. We use trusted shipping partners, Royal Mail and DPD, because in our experience they are the best. However, accidents do happen, especially when you are in the business of selling glass and plants!
Unfortunately, we cannot take responsibility for plants that perish or deteriorate once they are in your aquarium or terrarium - the reason is simple, all aquarium and terrarium set-ups are different, and all plants have different needs. Doing your research ahead of time is all part of the learning process, and we hope our website provides enough information for you to make an informed decision. If you need more information about a product, or are unsure if it will work with your set-up, just get in touch, we won't bite!
Evolution Aqua (EA) Aquascaper aquariums are shipped directly from the manufacturers warehouse. Delivery is within 14 days, but normally sooner than this. There is an additional delivery charge on EA aquariums of £49.99 due to the size and nature of the product. You will receive a call to advise of a delivery date so you can be in to accept delivery.
All other aquariums can be shipped but may be classed in our 'Heavy Shipping' rate if the total order is more than 20kg.
Hardscape & other heavy materials
We pride ourselves on our extensive range of hardscape, but we understand it is not always possible to come and visit to touch and feel stone and wood in person. Please get in touch with us via phone (+44 (0) 1603 761900) or email (firstname.lastname@example.org) if you have a particular layout or shape(s) you are trying to source.
Given the nature of hardscape (ie it's heavy and expensive to ship!), we have had to cap free shipping at 20kg. The reason is simple, if a customer buys 3 x 15kg bags of gravel and 15kg of stone, this costs us over £50 to ship to you - meaning we make little, or nothing on your order - unfortunately, to stay alive as a business we do need to make a profit so we can carry on offering quality products to our customers.
