At 3 millimeters thick, its deep brown hue offers a pleasant environment suitable for shrimp and plants alike. FlorinVolcanit Rio Cafe-F has several key features. These are: Fired Volcanic Material To create the substrate, volcanic materials must first be ignited, which forms an inert material which doesn't let harmful substances escape into the environment and thus provides a cleaner and safer habitat for aquatic creatures. Plant Growth:A 3mm particle size substrate allows proper root development and serves as an anchor point for your aquatic plants, encouraging healthy growth that allows your aquarium to flourish. Shrimp Habitat The substrate provides an environment which replicates their natural habitat and promotes their natural behavior and overall wellbeing, replicating what would occur naturally in their habitats. FlorinVolcanit Rio Cafe-F contributes to water quality by offering an ideal environment for beneficial bacteria to colonize, contributing both to filtering processes as well as to maintaining equilibrium within an aquarium environment. Aesthetic Appeal: The deep brown hue of your substrate adds dimension and warmth to the visual environment of your aquarium, complementing aquatic plants as well as vivid hues from shrimp for an eye-catching display.

Helpful Questions From Clients
Frequently Asked Questions
Is hiring a professional necessary to set up a saltwater aquarium?

As a general rule, a larger custom aquarium might require installation by a professional. However, a kit from our online fish store is relatively affordable and beginner friendly. That means you should have no problem setting it up yourself.

Which saltwater aquarium fish should you choose when starting out?

Consider a yellow tang fish. This popular saltwater aquarium fish does a great job of coexisting with other types of fish you’ll find in our online fish store.

How does a saltwater aquarium differ from a freshwater one?

Saltwater aquariums require a bit more maintenance and monitoring than freshwater tanks. Different fish require different levels of salinity, pH tolerances, and temperature requirements. They also require specialized pumps, filters, and other equipment that can handle salt. We can guide you through everything you need to know to set up a healthy, thriving reef tank.

Do fish in a saltwater aquarium swim in a school?

That depends on the species. However, if it’s a fish that swims in a school in the wild, they’ll do the same in an aquarium. Some fish that swim in schools include the green and blue chromis, cardinalfish, and dartfish, for example. When ordering from an online fish store, make sure you do your research on how specific fish species behave to ensure they’ll school (or at least coexist) with your current fish.

Is the effort required to maintain a saltwater aquarium worth it?

Yes! Many aquarists dream of owning thriving saltwater aquariums. You have a tiny piece of the ocean in your home, featuring magical and exotic fish that can only survive in saltwater.
