Tantora Catappa Leaves can be added to your aquarium to help create a natural habitat for your fish, shrimp, and other aquarium life. Catappa, also known as Indian Almond Leaf or Ketapang, is rich in tannins with antibacterial and anti-fungal properties. Use approximately 1 piece per 30L (9 gallons) of aquarium water. For smaller aquariums, cut the leaves into appropriate sized portions. There are 50 pieces per pouch, approximately 5-7 inches in length, in a resealable bag. Note: This product is all natural and organic. Each is unique and may vary in appearance from the sample photo.

Oak Leaves Instead? I've heard of people using oak leaves in areas where they are 100% sure there is no risk of pesticides, fungicides, fungus, parasites or other problems that can invade a tank and kill all your fish. Some breeders have used them for years with no report of problems. Use at your own risk. I find oak leaves do not smell sweet like these do either and am not sure I should expose my species of fish to those. Catappa's are most like the leaves from the continent's region my fish are from. If you're certain your oak leaves are risk-free, yes, they are said by breeders to work just the same as catappas. Myself, I can't put my pets at risk if something sneaks in.
Stained Water? Mine did not stain the water of my 10 or 20 gallon like some say they do. Maybe that's just because it's already tinted from all the greenery inside? In a natural-looking tank, these will only compliment appearances.
Sinking Them: Don't boil them to force them to sink, as you're removing valuable nutrients you threw your money at to get! Let them take up your tank water and sink naturally. They'll become a valuable part of your tank's natural filter. You can also just let them deteriorate into your tank. This does not harm your fish, because you're doing your regular water changes. Remove any unwanted debris once they break down fully if you prefer, but they act the same as wood ornaments even if not as pretty once a full skeleton.
Food: These are great food for at least plecos and shrimp once developed enough to sink. The filter slimecoat they'll get will sustain your picking and sucking pets, but I've also seen my minnows peck at them sometimes.
I recommend these for any freshwater tank looking to replicate a forest pond, stream or lake.
