Description

Indian almond leaves (katappa, catappa, katappang leaves) are commonly used for conditioning betta fish but are also ideal for keeping discus, corys, gouramis, tetras, angelfish, South American dwarf cichlids and shrimp. They are rich in compounds that tend to improve fertility, health, and vigour of tropical fish. The leaves release ample amounts of tannins into the water, that have antibacterial and anti-fungal properties but it will turn the water brown. The tannins will also affect the pH value of the water (depending on the hardness of the water).

Aquarium safe addition to a dwarf shrimp tank
By aquapico from Toronto, Canada on September 26, 2017
For a peace of mind, get aquarium safe Indian almond leaves from reliable source. While picked on the street mulberry or oak leaves could be used, they might have traces of pesticides or just plain city air pollution. Better be safe than sorry.

Contains tannins, helps to soften water a bit, and serves as a substrate for a biofilm, cherry shrimp food.

Big leafs, great quality. Shrimps like snacking on it every now and then, which is funny to watch.

Nice big leaves!
By Andrija Komarnjicki from Alberta, Canada on December 24, 2015
A must for shrimp tanks for both hiding place and beneficial water quality aids. It will help with bacterial and fungal outbreaks or if you use it regularly, prevent them from happening. On the other side as it decomposes, it acts as a continues source of food.
