  • Description

    The Great Rift Lakes of Africa are known for their stunningly diverse and unique aquatic ecosystems. The colors and textures of the Nautilus Tan Riverbed are reminiscent of the rich and varied habitats found in these lakes. Imagine the vibrant colors of the cichlids, and other fish species found in the Great Rift Lakes swimming amongst the natural-looking substrate.


    The shells in Nautilus Tan provide not only aesthetic value but also serve as a functional element in the biotope. Many fish species use shells as hiding spots or as a place to lay eggs. The shells also provide natural shelter and foraging opportunities for smaller aquatic creatures, helping to maintain a healthy ecosystem.


    As you create your aquatic environment, let your imagination transport you to the depths of the Great Rift Lakes of Africa. Visualize the diverse and unique aquatic species living and thriving amongst the earthy sands, gravels, and shells of the Nautilus Tan Riverbed.


    The substrate is perfect for recreating biotopes of lakes, estuarine, and marine environments. It can benefit fishes that engage with shells as part of their life cycles by crushing, moving, or living inside them. With the enrichment line Shell Shelter normal and XL, Nautilus Tan can provide even more natural stimulation to your aquatic pets.


    Nautilus Tan is available in bags of 2kg and 5kg, and the size mix ranges from 0.1cm to 5cm. The substrate is suitable for any type of aquarium or terrarium design, providing a unique and natural touch to your aquatic environment.
