Complementary Feed for Invertebrates
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 reason that they need minerals. Minerals 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.
