Description

SunGrow Indian Almond Catappa Aquarium Fish Betta Leaves provide your tank with all-natural benefits. These organic leaves are rich in tannin and humic acids for the right pH level and add beneficial minerals to your aquarium. Along with serving as shelter, they act as a supplement for your underwater buddy’s diet and snails, shrimp and fishes have been known to occasionally take a nibble on these leaves to keep themselves healthy. Catappa leaves also form makeshift shelters for fishes to sleep under and are great nests for eggs to latch onto. Give your aquatic environment an overall boost with SunGrow Giant Live Aquarium Catappa Leaves.

Key Benefits
  • 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!

    Great but turns water brown

    By on

    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.

    Great for Bettas

    My leaves came in great condition and my Betta fish love them! It's great for creating a natural environment for them and you can't go wrong with the health benefits of the tannins.

    From An Experienced Aquarist:

    By on Top 50 Contributor

    Catappa leaves serve many purposes for our freshwater and brackish aquariums! As most of us know, Catappa leaves release tannins into the water. Whether you like the natural appearance of a light yellow to dark amber color in the water, we all agree that tannins are good for the health of aquatics. Tannins are natural compound found in many organic compounds such as driftwood, leaf litter, and alter cones. Tannins are antibacterial, antifungal, antiparasitic, and algaecidal. They can help prevent and treat existing infections and parasites in an aquarium, such as Fin Rot, Pop-Eye, and even Ich or Velvet, among many others.

They can help prevent and treat existing infections and parasites in an aquarium, such as Fin Rot, Pop-Eye, and even Ich or Velvet, among many others. Raising the temperature in the aquarium, using freshwater aquarium salt, performing large, frequent water changes of 40-90% daily or every 2-3 days, or the addition of natural antibiotics suggested by your exotics/aquatics veterinarian can also be used to treat serious infections or parasites in the water. This is why I prefer tannins over any artificial, questionable "treatment" in the market, and is exactly why I use these Catappa leaves (driftwood and alder cones as well) in my licensed rescue/foster/rehab center for Betta fish and nano aquaria. I've healed many Bettas with overly long fins (like Rosetails, Feathertails, and long-tailed Halfmoons, which makes their tails too heavy and therefore they bite their own tails off), like Muesli and Texas Pete, two male Bettas of which apparently had overly long fins. I've also used it on many other nano aquatics and Bettas with many other diseases and infections, and it has never failed me. My fellow aquarists, I highly suggest and recommend you consider tannins, which are ultimately much safer, more natural, cheaper for those of you with a small budget, and I believe much more likely to treat infections than any of those many other artificial 'treatments'.

    My betta and shrimp like this

    By on

    I put one leaf in my 5 gallon betta tank and one in my 7.5 gallon shrimp tank. Shrimp are always on theirs and my betta likes to lay on his. It releases some tannins that I’m hoping will help my betta’s fins that are getting shorter.

    Definitely recommend!

    By on

    I love how the leaves look inside of the tank, very natural, and my betta loves them! I definitely recommend it and I will be buying more in the future. They came in different sizes and colors and none were ripped or broken. Overall, I'm very happy with my purchase.

    For the lizards too

    By on Top 10 Contributor

    Bought for my betta fish (she likes them) and decided to crush some into my bioactive terrarium too - leaf litter from outside makes me nervous (ticks, termites, mites...) and these were great! Will absolutely be buying more!
