Brachy Pods (Small Jungle 1oz)

Description

 Brachy pods, also known as Jungle Pods, are unique seed pods originating from the Kurrajong tree (Brachychiton populneus), found in the scrublands of Australia. These litttle "taco" shaped pods make excellent additions when creating naturalistic terrariums or aquariums. Here are some details about Brachy pods:

  1. Appearance and Texture:

    • Brachy pods resemble small tacos, with a distinctive shape.
    • They have a reddish-brown color and intriguing patterns, adding visual interest to your aquatic setup.
  2. Uses in Aquariums:

    • Decorative Element: Sprinkle Brachy pods on your substrate to create a more naturalistic and visually appealing environment.
    • Hiding Spots: These pods serve as hiding spots for small aquatic creatures, such as shrimp and fish fry.
    • Tannins Release: Like other botanicals, Brachy pods release tannins into the water, creating a gentle tint. This tint mimics natural habitats and reduces stress for aquarium inhabitants.
    • Water Conditioning: The tannins also have antibacterial properties and can lower pH levels, benefiting certain fish species.
  3. Preparation:

    • Boiling: To prepare Brachy pods, boil them for approximately 40 to 60 minutes. This step cleans away bacteria, dirt, and debris.
    • Waterlogging: After boiling, allow the pods to sit in clean water overnight. Rinse them thoroughly and place them in your aquarium. If they don’t sink, weigh them down with stones or substrate until they become waterlogged.

Remember, Brachy pods contribute not only to aesthetics but also to the well-being of your aquatic friends.
