Catappa Leaves 10 Pack

Catappa leaves, also known as Indian Almond leaves or Ketapang leaves, are widely used in the aquarium hobby to provide a range of benefits to aquatic organisms. These large, dried leaves come from the Terminalia catappa tree and contain tannins and other natural compounds that can have a positive impact on the water quality and health of aquarium inhabitants.

When added to an aquarium, catappa leaves release tannins that can help lower the pH and create a natural environment that is similar to the conditions found in the wild. The tannins also have anti-fungal and anti-bacterial properties that can help prevent diseases and infections. In addition, catappa leaves can provide a natural food source for some aquatic animals, Catfish fry do particularly well with catappa leaves for shelter and food.

Catappa leaves can also be beneficial for breeding fish and raising fry, as they can stimulate spawning and provide a safe environment for eggs and young fish. The leaves can also help reduce stress and promote overall well-being in aquarium inhabitants.

To use catappa leaves in an aquarium, simply add the desired amount to the water. The leaves will gradually release their beneficial compounds over time, so it is recommended to replace them every few weeks or as needed. Overall, catappa leaves are a natural and effective way to improve the health and well-being of aquarium inhabitants, and are a popular choice among many aquarium enthusiasts.
