These intricately detailed roots are designed to bring a touch of natural beauty to your aquarium, paludarium, or terrarium. With a variety of thin to very thin sizes available, you can achieve remarkable levels of detail in your nature-inspired creations.
Crafted from authentic tree roots, each Mini Root undergoes a process of heat treatment and dehydration, ensuring their durability and longevity. To restore their flexibility, simply submerge the roots in water for 24 hours before incorporating them into your setup.

In paludariums, these roots can mimic the intricate beauty of a natural environment, providing a sense of depth and authenticity. When used in terrariums, Mini Roots can create the illusion of a forest floor or tree roots elegantly crawling up the walls. Their pliability allows for effortless manipulation and customization, empowering you to unleash your creativity and bring your imaginative designs to life.

- Color: Natural brown
- Material: Real roots that have been heat-treated and dehydrated
- Size: Range of thin to very thin sizes, length from 10 to 40cm
- Water hardness: Does affect water hardness.
- Packing: Available in +80gr bags
- To restore their flexibility, simply soak them in water for 24 hours before use.
- Rinse the roots with water before use to remove any dust or debris.
- To prevent buoyancy, use rocks, anchors, or other objects to weigh down the roots in the initial setup until they become waterlogged and sink. You can also tie or glue to attach the roots to objects in the tank.
- Roots may release tannins during the initial setup, which can give the water a cognac-like color. This is a natural process and not harmful to aquarium organisms. To control the amount of tannins in the water, do frequent water changes.
- If you want to reduce the amount of tannins released during the initial setup, you can boil the roots in water for a few hours or submerge them in water for a month prior to use in the aquarium.
- Saprolegnia, a type of white fungus, may appear on the surface of the roots during the initial setup. If this occurs, use a small tube to scrape and suction it out frequently until it disappears, which normally takes about a month.
- Made from 100% natural wood.
- Safe for fish, shrimps, and other aquatic animals.
