Hey everyone!   I've been a bit inactive on this forum, but I'm back to show you guys what I've been up to.

I design and make the products at www.elevateshrimp.com and I have a bunch of products that I use almost every day to make my shrimp keeping easier. 

I have everything from clip-on moss ledges to powder food feeders, all 3D printed with aquarium safe plastics.  I also do custom designs, my favorite being a Dallas Cowboys moss wall. 

I also have a unique hair algae killer solution that you have never seen before and is completely shrimp and plant safe.

Whats in the hair algae killer? Does affect water quality? Does it change water parameters? Does it affect other plants and moss?

the hair algae killer is a proprietary chemical mix, it does not directly change water parameters, however it will start to add nitrates when your algae starts to die and rot.  It has been tested in both low tech shrimp setups and high tech fish setups with no problems to the livestock nor plants and mosses (with the exception to marimo moss balls).

Im going to try it out. I placed an order. I hope it doesn't freeze solid -23 and getting colder.

I appreciate the tip but its not shrimp so no big deal . My sense of humor did not translate very well.

 

It's a valid point, the bottle might leak a little bit like putting a water bottle in the freezer.  I'll split it up and ship it to you in the standard container and a smaller container to account for expansion

I ordered the algae killer. Let's see how it goes :) Does the bottle have a list of ingredients?

secret sauce ;)   It is not anything fertilizer related nor anything you get can get commercially 

 

 

Does the solution get effected if it gets frozen?

 

No it shouldn't,  the chemical is an aqueous chemical mix that is slightly colloid.  The freezing point depression of the chemical is definitely not enough to keep it liquid form in -23F haha but transitioning from liquid to solid should only lock the chemical within the water crystals instead of tear it apart.

just make sure the lids on tight and put it in a bag tie a knot, no use cutting profits.

Polylactic acid (PLA) made from corn starch.

 

 

How has it been holding up for you?

 

I have a 3d printer and wanted to print out some little hidey holes and such but was finding very mixed results when I searched whether or not it was safe.

The general belief I came across was that PLA would break down, but most of this was from marine aquarium forums.
