  • 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.

I love these

I bought these for some unexpected fry and I also love the tannins and just the look in general

Good shrimp snack.

They're leaves. Shrimp eat them. It's pretty straightforward. They were well dried and didn't have any dust or gunk in them. They take a day or two to sink but after that the shrimps love them.
