Coconut flowers can serve as a natural decoration in the aquarium. They are the parts that the coconut is attached to in the tree. These dried flower parts become woody and remain well in the aquarium for a long time. In a biotope aquarium they immediately give a tropical look.
The dried coconut flowers show their best in a black-water biotope. They release tannins that slightly discolor the water and lower the pH. They can provide a natural hiding place in a shrimp aquarium. Slowly they will be digested by microorganisms. The resulting biofilm serves as a natural source of nutrients for shrimps, lobsters, snails and fish.
During the decomposition of the coconut flowers, tanins are released into the water. These lower the pH in a very gradual way. Animals preferring a low pH can benefit from this.
The dried coconut flowers are 100% natural and can be used directly in the aquarium. At first they will float and eventually sink to the bottom. Boiling them or soaking them in warm water can speed up this process.
