Shimps and your Aquarium

It is commonly known that virtually all the loose plants available on line and in aquarium outlets across the country originate from the Far East and are treated with a copper based snail treatment to prevent any infestation of snails in your aquarium. Although this is completely harmless to fish it can harm any shrimps you have in your aquarium and note should be taken before introducing such plants.

This does not apply to any European supplied aquarium plants such as the section on our web site marked up as TROPICA. But the only 100% guaranteed way to ensure your shrimps are totally safe from any types of snail control is to go for Laboratory grown plants such as the 1-2-Grow section on our site from Tropica.
