  • Acts as a supplement for your underwater buddy’s diet and can also be nibbled on. Forms makeshift shelters for fishes to sleep under and are great nests for eggs to latch onto.
  • Ideal for soft water or blackwater fish such as Bettas, Corys, Plecos and all species of shrimp. Catappa leaves release tannins into the water, which are good for the health of aquatics.
  • Tannins deliver antibacterial, anti-fungal, anti-parasitic, and algaecidal properties, which can help prevent and treat existing infections and parasites in an aquarium, such as Fin Rot, Pop-Eye, and even Ich or Velvet and more.
  • Tropical fish use a floating leaf or a plant to anchor their bubbles, creating bubble nests. Simply add these leaves and watch your breeding tetra, guppy, platies, molly, cichlids or shrimp anchor their eggs!

Do you leave these in the tank or change them out? If you change the leaves, when do you do it?
Answer by ChewyDec 27, 2019
It is recommended to change the leaves when performing a full water change on your tank.

can I use these on fish other than bettas
Answer by ChewyMar 10, 2020
These leaves can be used for a variety of fish. They are ideal for soft water or blackwater fish such as Bettas, Corys, Plecos and all species of shrimp.

Do these leaves replace a tap water conditioner?
Answer by ChewyJan 13, 2021
Tap water conditioner helps to remove chlorine, which is harmful to fish. Indian almond leaves help to lower the pH of water by releasing tannin. It does not remove chlorine.

How long are these leaves?
Answer by ChewyJul 20, 2020

Quality product

My betta, shrimp, and snails seem to really enjoy these. They are good for water conditioning and I'm told have mild antibacterial properties. Will definitely buy again.

Cleared up mild fin rot in my goldfish fast.

I used some of these leaves in my goldfish tank to add tannins when I noticed some of my goldfish showing signs of fin rot. It cleared up all the fin rot within 2 weeks. The leaves last about 2-3 months before disintegrating. There are ten large leaves in the package, each about as big as my whole hand, including fingers. I will be making this a part of my regular tank maintenance. They did not lower the pH too much for the goldfish. (I tested before and after.)

Something's changed

Something's changed in this product. When I used to buy them, they were much bigger, changed the color of the tank faster, helped my axolotls faster, and now, the leaves are like a third of the size, need to soak for over a week to start helping, and the coloration is different too. They have like a red residue or hue to them. The last 2 times I ordered them, they've been like this. How do I get the previous quality again?

Excellent Value

The other reviews are correct- these are HUGE. I had purchased a pack of 3 tiny little 3-inch leaves from one of the "brick and mortar" competitor chains for nearly the same price. These are huge, you get many more leaves, and they seem better quality too? I was also pleasantly surprised that they arrived completely unharmed in a box with two 5lb bags of cat food. Thank you to whoever packed the box snuggly enough that the cat food didn't slide around in transit and crush my leaves.

Fantastic and Large

My fish and invertebrates love these. They add great tannins as they decompose and break down while also adding a food source and natural look to the aquarium. They were also bigger than expected which is an added bonus.

Not just for betta's

I got these coz I heard shrimp love to pick off the biological stuff and they have been. I have 4 fish tanks all with shrimp . I guess it's a type of food too I'm happy my ghost shrimp are happy as they are pets not food for other fish and they live in harmony with all

Wow these are BIG!

Each leaf is bigger than my hand! A pack lasted me a good while in my 5gal tank. WELL worth the cost considering the price of a bottle of almond leaf extract or a bag of the tiny leaves they sell in stores.

Keeping freshwater fish heathy

I've been keeping fish as a hobby for over 45 years. I just love this product. It keeps the diseases away and the fish love them.(sailfin mollies, koi swordtails, guppies) and it's a great hiding place for the fry. I keep all fry in the tank with the adults and they survive without a problem.

Catappa leaves

Totally misleading, $9 for 10 medium size leaves. The description said 1 lb. It was less than 1 oz. that with the packaging. Nowhere does it say 10 leaves. I would not recommend this or purchase again.
