It's Ebi-Ken, not ebiten. Ebiten has a pureline shrimp but no products as far as I know. As for who has them, I'm not sure but I think Mordlaphus (Liam) still sells them or you can try contacting Ebi-Ken via his website here and see if he ships products to the states, not sure though. I've have the Nagomi and Shou products in my tank, just added them so can't comment yet on the effects but from others reviews, they seem to like them. As for info, here is info on the different products.


Ebiken Nagomi (5 pcs)
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.

Ebiken Ei (difference is contains a 1g spoon and clear silica gel packing with instuctions card)
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.

Ebiken Shou (contains instruction card)
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.

Ebiken Kou-yang (rock) 30g (white mineral rock)
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.
