Taxiphyllum 'Bamboo Home'


Attractive deco item with exceptional features - this is Bamboo Home. Ideal as a playground for shrimp and hiding place for smaller fish. The tubes are made of bamboo charcoal which has been produced in Asia for over 1000 years. Also known as "black gold", it has many beneficial effects for the aquarium. Due to the porous structure, useful microorganisms can settle very well, in addition, bamboo charcoal releases natural minerals such as calcium, potassium and sodium into the water. By planting the well-known bogormoss Taxiphyllum barbieri, Bamboo Home is a real enrichment for the foreground in the aquarium.
