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!
I got these for my Betta who is recovering from a lot of things I had no idea about (long story). He’s in a five gallon tank by himself, heated with a filter. I cut one leaf in half and rinsed it in warm water. Let it dry and then submerged it in his tank, I stuck part of it under his skull hideout. During the first week of it being in there I learned that you need to have a non-carbon filter because the carbon takes most of the tannins out of the water...geez!! So I went on a hunt for a new filter. Make sure you guys pay attention to the the PH levels also. They can tend to drop with IAL in there. My water did turn slightly darker.
Looks nice and Diego likes it

I got these to keep my tank natural for my betta Diego. He seem to like it. Took 3 days to sink and didn’t really turn my water brown like everyone was saying but did turn it a lil cloudy. I put one leaf in a 3.5 gallon tank. And plan on switching them out once every couple weeks. Although I don’t see why you can’t leave it in there longer. The only reason why it didn’t get 5 stars was because it don’t state how to store the leaves til you use them.

I had saved my betta from an apartment fire and she was super stressed from everything. Her color faded and she started to fin nip. I ordered these and cut one in half since they are pretty big. Put it in and two days later her color was back and she was no longer fin nipping. Will order these again when I run out!
My betta loves them

As always shipping is fast and to my surprise the leaves were bigger than expected. Brought home a new betta with a bit of fin rot. I ripped up one leaf in pieces and put it in my 10g. My betta loves to hide under the pieces that have sunk in. Can’t wait for him to get his color back and have new fin growth
May have saved my new Betta!

Had a new Betta that was very active in the store. Day after I brought him home, he was lethargic and not eating. Popped up a piece of this in and he's back to being active and eating.
Broke up a leaf and put parts in all my Betta tanks. Happy fish!

I don't normally review things, but these leaves are amazing. They are HUGE, and you get a ton of them. Great value. Fish stores sell tiny pathetic leaves for double this price.

Came exactly as I expected, no problems at all. My fish are loving the tannins!
Much bigger then expected!

I have seen some in stores that are not much bigger then the fish itself. These leaves are big and you really get money’s worth.

Great but turns water brown

Our betta seems to really love these! But they turn the water brown immediately. I almost gave it 4 stars because of that but I understand a healthy habitat isn't always crystal clear. Our betta seems really happy now so 5 stars it is! Very affordable and we've reused the same leaf a couple times now.
