  • Promotes Healing Naturally
  • Adds Tint to Water
  • Great for Bettas

Catappa leaves also known as Indian Almond Leaves come from the Terminalia catappa tree. They have chemical healing properties which may naturally help fight off mild bacterial, fungal or parasitic infections. Therefore, these leaves are great for many different types of livestock including bettas, shrimp, community fish and more. 

In nature, Terminalia catappa leaves will fall into rivers and other bodies of water and will tint the water a rich brown 'tea' color as they break down. This is due to chemical compounds found within the leaves called tannins. For this reason, Catappa leaves are often used in blackwater setups to achieve deeper brown colored water and for leaf litter on the bottom.

Outstanding Quality!

I've purchased Catappa leaves at my local fish store a few times, these are about 3 times the size of any I've ever purchased locally and were significantly cheaper. These are about the size of my hand and are top notch quality, I would recommend these to anyone!

Love them!

As always, everything was shipped quickly and we'll. The Catalpa leaves are perfect and pretty big. They tinted the water beautifully. After about a day in the aquarium they sunk to the bottom. They look great on the bottom.

My shrimp love these!

I put one of these a week in my shrimp tank for them to munch on when it gets nice and soft. One a week doesn't stain my water enough to notice except during water changes. I love being able to provide safe and natural food and tanins for my shrimps!
