About This Item

  • Organic Catappa leaves that provide your aquarium with all-natural benefits. Rich in tannin and humic acids for the right pH level and adds beneficial minerals to your tank.
  • 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!

How long are these leaves?

SunGrow Catappa Aquarium Fish Betta Leaves are approximately 7 inches long.

Do these leaves replace a tap water conditioner?

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.

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.

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.

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.

Exactly what I needed

I'm surprised by the bad reviews I kept seeing, this is a steal! The leaves are huge and it comes with multiple. My betta Ziggy perked right up after putting these in his tank and I also love the look it gives his home! Highly recommend!

Love these!

Betta boy loves these leaves! We set one end of a leaf on the top of his favorite plant and the other end of the leaf on his floating log in the corner like a canopy and he just loves it!

Does not work

I was excited to see such a large leaf. I figured my betta could also rest on the leaf or mess around with it when bored. 48 hours after I placed it in my betta's 5gallon tank...nothing. No change in the water at all. My local pet stores have always carried much smaller versions of this product and I've seen the leaves start to alter the water within an hour. I don't know what is happening with this product but it is a BIG BUST.

Made my shrimp very happy!

Wow! I heard all the hype about these but didn’t realize just HOW MUCH shrimp love them. I have a new little 5.5 gallon shrimp tank setup and I really want my shrimp colony to survive and do well so I thought I’d get some of these after hearing how great they are for shrimp. My shrimp went from acting sort of listless and inactive to being super happy little shrimp within hours of sticking one of these bad boys in there! And they’ve been busy grazing all over the place and generally just doing their happy little shrimp thing ever since. So glad I got these!

I bought these for my betta and let me tell you BEST. INVESTMENT. EVER. Tinted the water within 24 hours! I’ve noticed it has also helped with my bettas fin rot!( I’ve been treating it for 2 weeks before receiving this product). Great product definitely recommend!
