Banana leaves have long been used in the shrimp hobby to encourage breeding and establish suitable water conditions so the shrimp are content. The leaves have been air dried and have been packaged to retain their freshness so that when placed in your aquarium they achieve the desired results.
Some other benefits are:
- Reduction of pH to benefit plants and fish/shrimp
- Helps to relieve stress
- Helps cure fish and shrimp skin due to anti bacterial properties
- Helps stop the growth of bacteria
- Stimulates colours on fish and shrimp
We recommend one leaf per 20L of water. Once the leaf decomposes replace. If trying to breed shrimp, use 3-4 leaves per 20L and leave in the aquarium until the shrimp have consumed the leaf.
Rinse all leaves before placing in aquarium.
Once you have used Banana leaves you'll wonder how you didn't know about them earlier!
Note: Picture is for illustration purposes only so if you put 1 in qty box, we'll send you 1 dried banana leaf.
