Catappa leaves also known as Indian Almond Leaves, are great for Shrimp, Bettas, healing mild bacterial and fungal infections etc.
For shrimp, replace the leaf when it has been mostly consumed. For Bettas and other fish where we are using the tannins for healing properties use them until they stop turning the water brown. We use 1 leaf per 5 gallons. Can also be used as leaf litter for species like Apistogrammas etc. You get 10 Catappa leaves per package. Leaf size ranges from 4 to 7 inches typically.

*If you've purchased leaves in the past from us, our latest batch of leaves are smaller. In part due to availability and in part due to people's request to have them fit into smaller aquariums.
