These high grade Terminalia catappa (Indian Almond) leaves have been selected from non-contaminated woods in Thailand, naturally fallen, dried under the sun, cleaned and selected according to size. These leaves have a size that ranges between 4"-7" (about 10-18cm).

Terminalia leaves are very popular amongst fish keepers/breeders around the world, as a natural medicine and water conditioner for aquarium use. They are believed to aid the fish increasing fertility, health and vigour. They reduce pH in the water, aid in the recovery of diseased fish and/or damaged fins, and the released tannins quickly colour the water resembling the natural habitat of the fishes.

As well as bettas, these leaves are also ideal for discusfish, gouramis, killifish, tetras, arowanas, angelfish, south american dwarf cichlids, corys, plecos and loricarids. Shrimps and other crustaceans love to chew on them.

How to use:
Add 1 hole leave for every 15-20 litres of aquarium water. You can add them directly to the aquarium (the leaves will naturally float for 2-3 days, and then sink), or crumble and fit them in a mesh bag in your filter. Leaves begin to desintegrate past 3-4 weeks, but is not neccessary to remove them, only for aesthetical reasons. Pre-breeding adults are benefitted from a 2-fold increase in dosage, and young fry in the contrary will thrive better with a half-dose.
