  • Unique complex that provides trace and minor elements in beneficial ratios
  • Supports neurological and metabolic reactions
  • Improves coloration
  • Replaces minor and trace elements lost through chemical filtration
  • Made from ultra-high purity materials and purified water

Brightwell's ShrimpCode contains trace and minor elements crucial to neurological and metabolic processes as well as overall coloration. Iits formulated specifically for freshwater shrimp & fish native to subtropical freshwater environments, including cardinal tetrats, neon tetras, rasboras, white clouds, glassfish, pygmy corydoras, kuhli loaches, and more. Dosing ShrimpCode to your aquaium during each water change is an easy and effective way to provide these substances for maximum health in your shrimp and freshwater community tanks.


Instructions & Guidelines

Basic: Shake product well: Add 2 ml (1 pump if equipped with a pump, or 2 threads on cap) of product per 8 US-gallons of aquarium water 2-3 times each week; When used in this fashion, 500 ml treats up to 2,000 US-gallons (9,500 L). This dosage may also be used for freshwater community aquaria.

Advanced: Dose 2 ml (1 pump if equipped with a pump, or 2 threads on cap) per 20 US-gallons daily for the first four weeks of use; Then, gradually increase the daily dosage to 4 ml per 20 US-gallons over the following four weeks and maintain this dosage. Starting at a low dosage will not cause any harm to aquarium inhabitants, and will enable you to notice subtle changes in the appearance of the system that indicate the effectiveness and need for the product. With the exception of iron, there are no hobbyist-grade test kits that provide reliable measurements of the concentrations of many minor and trace elements present in freshwater aquaria. It's therefore not possible to chemically determine exactly how much of a trace and minor element supplement to dose; rather, you must rely on the appearance of the livestock to make that determination. Daily dosing maintains more stable concentrations (and a more natural environment) than dosing weekly, in which the concentration of elements spikes just after dosing and then gradually decreases throughout the course of the week. Though trace and minor elements are essential to critical biological processes, the gross overdosing of a trace and minor element supplement can be harmful to aquarium inhabitants. Minor and trace elements are made unavailable in aquaria largely by adsorption to particulate organic matter (POM); therefore, aquaria with large amounts of latent organic material may require slightly heavier dosing of this product to compensate for that which is bound. In all cases, latent organic material should be removed as thoroughly as possible from aquaria because of the negative impact that it can have on water quality. The use of activated carbon will remove trace and minor elements both passively and actively, requiring that this product be dosed after the use of carbon filtration media.

Caution: Keep out of reach of children. Not for human consumption.

Ingredients: Purified water, species specific minor and trace mineral blend
