Step 1: Preparation

  • Before using MulchBed Accents, rinse them thoroughly with water to remove any dust or debris. You can use a colander or bucket for this purpose.

Step 2: Soaking

  • Fill a bag or a bucket with warm water and add the MulchBed mix. Soak the mix for 24 hours. Then, rinse it carefully to clear any remaining dust.

Step 3: Placement

  • Carefully spread the MulchBed mix on the bottom of your aquarium, paludarium, or terrarium, or use it as a forest floor in emersed displays. Distribute the accents around the substrate, mimicking the natural patterns found in forest floors and riverbeds.

Step 4: Adjustment and Fine-Tuning

  • Observe the overall appearance of your scape and make any necessary adjustments to the placement of the accents. Fine-tune the arrangement to ensure the accents blend seamlessly with the existing substrate and provide the desired level of detail and realism.
  • Feel free to experiment with different arrangements and combinations of accents to achieve the perfect look for your setup.

Step 5: Maintenance

  • Regularly check the accents for any buildup of debris and remove as needed.
  • During maintenance, you may need to reposition or add more accents to maintain the desired appearance.

Remember that the placement of MulchBed Accents can significantly enhance the visual appeal of your aquarium, paludarium, or terrarium. Take your time and be creative with the placement to achieve a natural and captivating environment. MulchBed Accents are safe for fish, shrimps, and other aquatic or terrestrial animals, and they will remain at the bottom of your tank for years without decomposing.

As you might expect, this is just chunks of wood, quite expensive for what it is and not a lot in the bag.

Your plants will be wrapped with recyclable Honey Comb wrap - sounds cool because it is :). It interlocks which means we don't need to use tape either, reducing our impact on the environment.

Not only is delivery fast with DPD Express but it's also green as they offset all the carbon their vehicles produce. Guilt free delivery which we're very proud of...

We guarantee you'll be happy with your order. But if you're not, please contact us so we can resolve. We are 100% here to help and will always do our best to resolve any issues - that's a promise.
