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.

These are huge!, so they should last me a while!
I used to these a few at a time but the other day I was informed that they sold the 10 pack in store. The fact that a better more efficient option was offered means a lot for customer service.
I recently discovered Aquarium Co-Op and have purchased several items including several packs of Catappa leaves. The arrived in good condition; fresh and well packaged. I'll be back for more.
Larger than I thought. My shrimp love them
Far better AND less expensive than other leaves I have bought. Huge, and full of tannins. quick delivery as well. Very pleased.
