Why do people hate shrimp

fennel

  • Hi everyone,

    As already written elsewhere, I brought camouflage shrimp (Paracardina meridionalis) from a fair, which had quite a problem that indicated a bacterial infection.

    After a generous Desamar service, the number of deaths decreased, but some of the animals retained their opaque abdomen. The molting of these animals then went catastrophically wrong, it is often the case that an animal weakened by illness does not survive the molting.

    Then I got the tip to feed me dried fennel greens in addition to generous alder cones and walnut leaves (which I already had in the pool). It is said to have a strong antibacterial effect. What did I have to lose? The animals did not look at brewed fennel green with the tail fan, it was completely ignored. But they like to take the dried greens.

    Today I was almost hit by the blow - of the seven animals in the pool only one has a white abdomen, and it looks much less "massive". So something seems to be working ...
    Thanks for the tip, Berni!
    Now my kids have to eat fennel more often * hrhrhr *.

    Cheers

  • a great tip, ulli.

    so go and buy the fennel, cut off the green and let it air dry ?? or in the oven with the lowest heat ??

  • Huhu Pipchen,

    Exactly, cut off the green, grate the rest and hide in a vegetable sauce (otherwise it's back to - iiiihgitt, fennel!), air dry the green and then crumble it into small pieces and sprinkle it in the basin. Don't over-brew, otherwise all the good stuff will be out again in a moment.

    Mini-servings are enough, you don't have to turn the basin into fennel tea ...

    Cheers

  • So, I did some research (or had someone explain to me, thank you Berni ...) what fennel can do.
    It contains antibacterial, fungicidal, healing and immune-strengthening essential oils such as α-phellandrene, α-pinene, cis-anethole, myristicin, α-terpinene, limonene and other substances, in the fresh herb almost 250 mg / 100 g vitamin C, beta-carotene (important as an antioxidant), iron, potassium, calcium and magnesium in readily available form, and also plenty of folic acid (good for cell regeneration).

    We now have that more often for the "people". Well, Bernhard, my children already hate you .

    Cheers

  • Ideally, in such a way that air can get in, i.e. in a paper bag, a cloth bag, a cardboard box ... Then, even with a little residual moisture, nothing rotates.

    Then you can keep that for about a year or even longer.

  • Hey, if it's really dry, you can crumble it up nicely with your fingers and put it in a spice shaker.
    Then it is ready to hand and can be fed quickly and easily

  • As a tea I think fennel is very tasty, as a vegetable it is a horror. If I feel like liquorice, I prefer Haribo.

    Only one thing helps: get yourself guinea pigs, they love fennel.
  • Hello...,
    The topic is older, but right now for me!
    I would like to plant fennel in my herb snail next year for myself and my shrimp.
    Which fennel should you choose?
    Against fennel, bulbous fennel or spiced fennel?
  • Hey, fennel, you take there.
    It is still available from dedicated gardening retailers.
    It will now be planted normally around the time.

    You can also buy vegetable fennel in the organic department in autumn and place in a bowl with water.
    It then leaves a lot of green leaves, but is totally exhausted in the process.
    But this way you can harvest fennel greens quickly and cheaply for your own needs.
    Simply dry it and then crumble it with your fingers or a chopping knife.
    Store in a screw-top jar, but fill in completely dry.
