CARIB SEA - Jungle Indian Almond Leaf - 3 Pack

Product Description
Indian or Tropical Almond leaves, also known as Catappa or Ketapang leaves are used by fish breeders worldwide to recreate the natural environment of tropical fish and invertebrates such as bettas, tetras, corys, angelfish, discus, freshwater shrimp and other species that come from soft-water jungle or rice paddy habitats. The natural tannins released by these unusual leaves are touted for their many health and biological benefits, and the “soft cover” created by these leaves give your tropicals shelter similar to what would be found in their native ecosystem. These leaves can also be used as a forest floor substrate for arthropods, tropical reptiles and amphibians. Betta Leaf™ and the somewhat larger Jungle Leaf™ are the perfect addition to your tropical environment.

CaribSea Jungle Leaf Indian Almond Leaf each measures approximately 5" x 8-1/2" long. 3-pack.
Place one Jungle Leaf in aquarium for each 10 gallons. Simply float it on top of the water, it will sink eventually, or anchor it to the tank bottom with heavy décor such as rocks or driftwood. You may notice many natural and healthy behaviors such as nesting, sheltering, and nibbling at the leaf. It is okay to leave the Jungle Leaf in the tank once its begins to disintegrate. Fish and invertebrates will benefit from the release of natural tannins as well as biological film that forms on the aged leaf. You may notice the water turns a slight "tea" color, this is normal and similar to their natural jungle habitat.

Once the leaf mostly disintegrated, more leaves can be added with or without removing the old one. It is important to do small, regular water changes and to maintain an ideal water temperature.

Jungle Leaf can also be used as a forest floor substrate for arthropods, tropical reptiles and amphibians including dart frogs, crested geckos, salamanders, tree frogs, jungle tarantulas and more. These creatures too enjoy the benefits of natural tannins and a realistic jungle ecoscape.
