Tantora White Mineral Stone (Montmorillonite)
Tantora White Mineral Stone is a clay mineral composite of Montmorillonite. This clay is derived from geologic tectonic plate activity, volcanic action and river hydrolysis. Montmorillonite silicate has attracted and attached potent mineral nutrients from mountain soils and streams. The nutrients in White Mineral Stone have properties to absorb toxins and improve water clarity. White Mineral Stone once dissolved into water provides trace minerals necessary for coloration and health of ornamental shrimps.
Benefits of Tantora White Mineral Stone
- Absorb toxin in the fish tank onto the clay particles which helps improve water quality and clarity. Montmorillonite has powerful adsorption and absorption powers. Naturally, White Mineral Stone has a negative charge inside the layers of the stone, while toxins have positive ions. The negative-ion White Mineral Stone will attract positive ions of toxins and bind them. Toxins commonly found in the aquarium include Ammonia, Hydrogen Sulfide, Nitrite, Methane and other wastes.
- Contain sufficient nutritions that encourage growth, health and higher survival rates of the shrimps. White Minerals Stone consists of minerals require for shrimps include.
- Reduce poisonous substances in the water. Improve shrimp?s health and enhance coloration.
- Tantora White Mineral Stones function best when it is saturated with water.
- Leave Tantora White Mineral Stones underwater to swell with water for 30 minutes before putting it to the tank. This will prevent cracking and breaking of the stone.
- Recommend to use 100g of White Mineral Stone per 50-70 litre of water.
- Replace after 4-6 months.
Mineral stones have several benefits, including the slow release of essential minerals into the water, which supplies micro-fauna, bacteria and shrimp within an aquarium. In the correct doses, these stones will not negatively impact your parameters. Mineral stones also have the ability to absorb toxins within your water column, and assist in improving and maintaining stable water quality. We use these stones in all of our breeding tanks. It is important to note, that if these stones become covered in algae, they may no longer be able to perform their purpose. It is recommended that should a layer of algae form on the stone, these should be gently cleaned with a sterile toothbrush or aquarium sponge.
Before using these stones, hold the stone under water for a short period of time (+-4 times every few minutes) to let it soak. This preparation prevents the stones from cracking and breaking down once placed in the aquarium.
