Transform your aquarium into a thriving aquatic haven with the magic of tannins. These powerful substances have been extensively researched and proven to be a formidable anti-fungal and anti-bacterial agent, keeping your fish and their eggs safe from infections. Tannins also have the power to control algae growth, reduce snail and crustacean populations, and create ideal living conditions for species that thrive in low pH and soft water environments. Experience the full potential of tannins with the addition of Catappa Leaves, a popular choice for creating blackwater biotope aquariums. These leaves serve as a multi-functional tool, offering shade, shelter, spawning sites, hiding places for fry, food sources for shrimp, and much more. Catappa Leaves are your secret weapon to unlocking the vibrant colors of your fish, increasing spawning behavior, and maintaining a balanced ecosystem in your aquarium.

  • No equipment restrictions necessary
  • Tannic acid can lower pH, monitor pH with a test kit during use and limit any change to 0.2 pH units per day if livestock are present
  • Safe for invertebrates

Recommended application: Use one leaf per 10 gallons (38L). Add directly to aquarium or pre-soak for faster sinking. Replace when tissue is decomposed or consumed.
