Catappa leaves have long been used in the shrimp hobby to encourage breeding and establish suitable water conditions so the shrimp are content. Catappa leaves are found naturally in their native environment and this is one of the reasons hobbyists use them.
- 15cm (approx)
The leaves have been air dried and have been packaged to retain their freshness so that when placed in the aquarium they achieve the desired results. Some other benefits are:
- Helps to cure fish with bacteria infections such as damaged fins
- Enhances fertility of fish
- Enhances natural colour of fish and shrimp
- Lowers pH
- Adds essential trace elements to your aquarium
We recommend 2 leaves 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 Catappa leaves you'll wonder how you didn't know about them earlier!
