Taxiphyllum 'Bamboo Home'


For many aquarium animals retreats are important basic conditions for a species-appropriate attitude. This is especially true for fish and invertebrates like shrimps and crayfish. Our decorative 3-piece tube made of natural bamboo charcoal is especially popular with dwarf shrimps and is often used as a feeding and romping place. Bamboo charcoal has been used in Asia for over 1000 years as a source of energy for heating and cooking. In addition to this property as a fuel, many other positive properties are attributed to it. For aquaristics, its ability to bind pollutants and its porous structural surface as a perfect colonization space for filter bacteria are of particular importance. Bamboo Home is a sustainable natural product! Due to their enormous growth rate, bamboo plants are considered to be particularly resource-saving.
