Complementary Feed for Invertebrates - Minerals are vital for the inverts in our aquaria. They cannot be produced by the organism itself but need to be taken in with the food. You can provide your aquarium inverts with all the minerals they need with the Mineral Junkie Pearls. These pearls contain inorganic minerals as well as minerals that are organically bound and prevent mineral deficiencies, which, in shrimp and other crustaceans, often cause molting problems, slow growth and a high mortality rate especially amongst the juveniles.
Snails can be given the Mineral Junkie Pearls to prevent holes from forming in their shells. Snails also grow better when they are supplied with an ample amount of minerals, and their shells tend to be smoother and stronger.
An ample mineral supply is a crucial factor in breeding and keeping shrimp, crayfish, crabs and snails, they are addicted (in a figurative sense) to these substances. All inverts possess a so-called exoskeleton, an important part of which they build from minerals. However, this is not the only thing they need minerals for, they are also vital for many tasks of the organism, like the excitation of muscles and nerves. As we all know, the color cells of dwarf shrimp (the chromatophores) are connected to muscles. An optimal mineral supply may thus have a positive effect on the intensity of the species-specific colors. Many hormonal processes would also be impossible without the right minerals.
Besides minerals, the Mineral Junkie Pearls contain ingredients of vegetable sources and herb extracts that are rich in beneficial phytochemicals, for agile and healthy inverts. We have kept the protein and fat content deliberately low to prevent an undue pollution of the water. The Mineral Junkie Pearls are an ideal staple food for the summer or when you are away for the weekend.
