GlasGarten Crispy Caves


The new Crispy Caves from GlasGarten are edible tubes / caves and thus food and hiding place in one...


The edible Crispy Caves contain essential natural fiber while enhancing the development of a biofilm on their surface. In particular for animals that like to graze on surfaces, such as shrimp, snails and sucker catfish, fiber is an important part of their diet and is needed for digestion.


The  Crispy Caves  consist largely of wood fibers (cellulose), clay and leaves, which are usually found in the natural habitats of the animals and are ingested in large numbers. Nutrients such as algae and bacteria are eaten with such fibers, which settle as a biofilm on surfaces and form the basis of food. Crispy Caves  remain dimensionally stable in the water and the nutrients have to be actively grated off with the roughage, which corresponds to the animals' natural eating behavior. 


The edible caves / tubes Crispy Caves are ideal for...
• shrimps
• catfish
• snails
• crabs
• land crabs


With the recommended feeding amount (see below), the  GlasGarten Crispy Caves  do not pollute the water and can remain in the aquarium until they have been completely eaten.   

Visually, they resemble wood or bark and thus offer a very natural decoration in the aquarium or the paludarium. Also recommended as holiday or holiday food.


The edible caves  Crispy Caves  consist of  100% natural ingredients

What you need to know about shrimp food

Compared with fish and other aquarium inhabitants, the diet of ornamental shrimps is quite different, especially regarding nutrient intake and digestion.

In nature, shrimps eat all day long. They are almost all the time busy grazing on the biofilm formed by bacteria and tender algae with their bristled claws. In the course of feeding, they wander around the aquarium, constantly taking up a great number of nutrients and fibres. Their digestive tract is perfectly adapted to this way of feeding. The food the shrimp has eaten is incessantly transported through the intestine by wavelike movements of the bowel muscle. Shrimps are not able to store large amounts of food in their cardiac and pyloric stomachs, thus it is crucial for them to keep eating almost constantly.
