Kou-Yang (rock) is a calcium bentonite based mineral rock that has a very high composition of calcium which invertebrates use to help with molting and aid in thicker and shinier whites. It also acts as an area for inverts to pick on for supplement minerals.
Use: It is recommended that 10 grams be used for every 10-20 gallons of water. For the best results, use a tooth brush to brush off the algae that grows on the surface of the mineral rock once awhile for the best performance.

$9 $8.00
50g $13 $11.00

Shou is an amazing product that has antibacterial properties, releases trace minerals, absorbs harmful toxins, deodorizes water, and as an active filtering media. This product contain: zinc, lithium, iodine, selenium, and 20 other trace elements which over a long period of time will slightly alter the TDS.
Use: 5 spheres every 10-15 gallons of water evenly spaced across the substrate. This product lasts 2 years and does not require any maintenance.

5 pieces
$18 $15.00

Nagomi is a ceramic based mineral ball which will continually release over 50 trace minerals into the water for shrimps to use for up to 2 years.
Use: To activate the ball, first take a bowl and place the balls in the bowl. Boil water until it comes to a boil and pour over the balls in the bowl until it is submerged in water. Allow the balls to sit in the boiling water for 2 minutes before pouring and letting it cool on its own. Once cool enough to touch place in the tank. It is recommended 5 balls per 10-20 gallons of water spread evenly across substrate or placed near a high flow area.

5 pieces $18 $15.00

Sosei is a highly dissolvable organic fulvic acid. It conditions the water to allow shrimps to thrive in a comfortable environment with soft acidic water. Increases the survival rates of baby shrimps and may increase the rate in which shrimps breed. It also promotes the growth of more luscious plants and enhances the root systems of plants and longevity of active soils.

25g $11 $9.00

A very fine micro-organism and beneficial bacteria baby powder specifically aimed for fast development of shrimps. This particular product does not have any adverse affect when accidentally overdosed. You will see an increased survival rate of baby shrimps and increased activity of adult shrimps.
Use: half a spoon full twice a week. Can be used everyday at 1/4 a teaspoon a day.

$18 $15.00

Here are a couple pics of the tools. I'll try to get some more pics up later, but I'm not sure I'll be able to get them up today. They are VERY nice in person. Good weight and very solid build quality.

hedge_fund 01-31-2013 03:41 PM

I just ordered a few things from Clay...didn't get the Han. Let me know if someone starts to use it...I'm curious to know what it's all about.

h4n 01-31-2013 04:08 PM

i'm definitely going go it :)

Haha, I thought about you when I was informed of the new product. I haven't used it personally yet (I will be soon), but I'm told it's been in testing for a while at EbiKen Studios and they're showing really good results, especially when used in conjunction with Ei. Think of it as sort of a shrimp targeted bacter 100.

And it should last a very long time. Dosage is 1 spoon full of these smallish granules per 10 gallons per month.

By the way, I also received a sample of EbiKen's upcoming "Pro Line" Black Titanium spring scissors. Wow. Best spring scissors I've ever seen. The new line has redesigned, grippier grips, and much longer blades. The blades are right around twice as long as on most currently available spring scissors. And they're an awesome sort of brushed black. As much as I love the current EbiKen scissors, these new ones are really quite a step up even from those.

h4n 02-01-2013 02:45 PM

hahah nice man!
i'll get some Han with the other stuff when you get it in.

the proline sounds good!

I like the scissors to beside the blade being to short.

i'll probably get those when you get them also :)
