Anyone know of a supplier of botanicals, looking for some of the larger pod types for my shrimp tanks.

blackwateruk seems to sell out immediately, taninaquatics in the US, the postage is a killer unless u do a group buy

Ive tried some of the smaller botanical types like tantoras stars and curls but they break down pretty quick

Cheers

Search for Dry Flower arrangement suppliers, some well equiped gardens centres might have a collection.. :) Or simply search dried pods on Ebay.

Lately i've tried natural dried Lotus Seed pods from the garden centre.. It took about 8 weeks before they sink and stay down.

Here is a UK supplier
https://www.theessentialscompany.co.uk/dried-natural/

I gues there should be more to find. :)
the lotus seed pods

They are hollow inside, like a little balloon.. And they are extremely light, just a small pocket of air makes them float. If they finaly sink and you take 'm out again they fill again with air.. Best is to take a syrigne with a needle and fill up with water to speed up the process.. :)
