Premium Quality Natural Banana Leaves

Banana leaves are believed to have the same properties as Catappa leaves – both are very beneficial in aquariums and can be used simultaneously. Banana leaves have preventive and healing properties and can boost shrimp immunity. Banana leaves have been found to have anti-parasitic, anti-bacterial and anti-fungal properties, helping keep the water free from pathogens, resulting in healthier and stronger fish. What's more, some breeders believe that the leaves induce fish and shrimp to spawn!

Many shrimp and betta fish keepers will use Banana leaves in their fish tanks, to help encourage breeding and spawning. They provide a nice hiding place for many species, and will create an attractive feature in your aquascape.

Our premium Banana leaves are foil-packed for freshness, releasing optimum tannins and lasting longer than inferior brands.

Benefits of adding Banana leaves to your aquarium:

  • Banana Leaves lower pH and Ammonia in aquarium water
  • Tannins released into the water have anti-bacterial properties
  • Free from pesticides, 100% hand-picked

Please note, Banana leaves will float at first until fully saturated when added to your aquarium, and will gradually release tannins which will give your water a brown tint. Tannins will filter out over time and are completely harmless to fish.

Safe for use with all freshwater fish. Not for human consumption.
