Natural is best and nothing is more pure and natural than SunGrow Catappa Leaves. These organic, hand-picked leaves are the perfect addition to your aquarium. They may not be on the top of your shopping list now, but they are about to be.

Catappa Leaves are actually one of the most hardworking vegetation in your tank, providing a whole slew of benefits for fishes, shrimps, frogs and even snails. Catappa Leaves are rich in tannin and humic acids that are the right pH level for soft water and blackwater fishes. It creates the right environment for sick fishes to heal and for healthy fishes to thrive and breed. When soft, the leaves also provide a diet supplement and snails, shrimp and fishes have been known to occasionally take a nibble on these leaves to keep themselves healthy. The leaves also form makeshift shelters for fishes to sleep under and are great nests for their eggs to latch onto.

You'll be sent 10 giant pcs of Catappa leaves. The size for each leave is about 7.5" (18 to 20cm) length, 3.7" (9 to 10cm) wide. Simply drop them in the tank. After a few days, you'll notice your tank water browning. This is natural as tannins are being released into the water (much like tea in water). Your tank water now has the right amount of nutrients and healing properties your fishes need. Remove the leaves after a few weeks or when you see that they've started disintegrating.

When it comes to the health of your fish, always go with natural. SunGrow Catappa Leaves are organic and hand-picked so we know that each and every single leaf is of the highest quality. Because SunGrow Catappa Leaves are organic, you don't have to boil them and risk destroying the nutrients. You can use them right away!
  • Seemingly simple, the Catappa Leaf (or sometimes known as the Indian almond leaf) is an unsung hero in the aquatic world. It provides shelter, a supplement to their diet, minerals for healing, tannin and humic acids for balanced pH value, and is a fantastic anchor for fishes to attach their eggs to.

  • SunGrow Catappa Leaves (7.5" (18-20 cm)) are a must have for any fish breeder of soft water or blackwater fish such as Bettas, Corys, Plecos and all species of shrimp. You will start to notice your aquarium life interacting with these, within the day these leaves are introduced. Just like they would in their natural habitat.

  • There are other products in the market that can help simulate the black water quality but none as good as leaves. Bottled black-water extracts may contain other chemicals mixed in, that may be harmful to your fish's breed. You could pick the leaves outside but you cannot be sure of the quality and level of contamination they might have. The best assurance for the health of your fish is to use SunGrow Catappa Leaves. They are hand-picked to ensure that every single leaf is of optimum quality.

  • Depending on your tank size and the pH level needed, drop a few leaves into your tank (If you want to be exact about the pH level, you can use a pH tester or a drop checker). Over the next few days, the leaves will slowly sink to the bottom. As they start to do so, they will soften and your fishes, shrimp and even snails will start to use the leaves as they see fit. Shrimps have been known to nibble on soft leaf, while fishes sometimes hide under them.

  • After a few days, you'll notice your tank water browning. This is tannins being released into the water ands are known to contain healing properties. Remove the leaves only when they start to disintegrate. Because SunGrow Catappa Leaves are organic, you don't have to boil them down and risk destroying the beneficial nutrients. Simply drop SunGrow Catappa Leaves straight into your tank... it's that easy to use.
