Indian Almond Leaves 

Dimensions- 4" to 6"

A MUST FOR ALL SHRIMP TANKS

 

Ketapang or Sea Almond or Indian Almond or Terminalia catappa leaves are known to most,

if not all Asian breeders softwater / blackwater tropical fishes (including arowana, discus, apostos, bettas, tetras, plecos, killifish etc),

 to be one of the best water conditioners to promote healing and breeding.

 They are known to have antibacteria and antifungal properties.

 Bettas are known to be induced to spawn by just putting a few of the leaves into their tank.

 Fish suffering finrot or injuries (such as spawning injuries) will definitely benefit from having the leaves in their quarantine tub.

 But they can be used for the usual aquariums too.

When soaked in water these leaves will leach a strong brown dye that is full of organic acids like humic acids and tannic acids.

 These may be useful for inhibiting many types of bacteria as well as to detoxify harmful heavy metals found in the aquarium. 

For bettas, put a 1-2 sq inch piece (or a quarter of a leaf) into each 1 gallons (4 litre) jar.

 For usual aquarium  put 2-3 leaves per 25 gallons (100 litres) of water for 14-21 days.

 Simply put the leaves into the aquarium. After 1-2 days the leaves will be water-logged and sink.

 Apart from their benefical effects on the water, they will tan the water slightly (to a clear amber)

 and provide a very natural stream-bottom look to your aquarium.

 Alternatively, you can boil the leaves to make blackwater extract and dose when you need.
