Premium Quality Natural Guava Leaves

Leaves and leaf litter are a good source of biofilm in fish tanks, and all shrimps love to graze on them. Having an assortment of leaf litter in your tank helps to ensure baby shrimp get through their first weeks. Microfauna and snails will eat them too. Guava leaves are ideal for creating blackwater aquarium conditions.

Guava Leaves specifically prevent Vibrio bacteria and eliminate luminous bacteria in Shrimp. Guava leaves contain polyphenols, carotenoids, flavenoids and tannins, and will decompose over time. Guava leaves are perfectly safe to remain in the tank. 

Guava leaves release tannins, which have preventive and healing properties and can boost shrimp immunity. Guava 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. Also relieves aquarium stress.

Our premium Guava Leaves are hand-picked and foil-packed for freshness, releasing optimum tannins and lasting longer than inferior brands. Replace every 3-5 weeks.

Benefits of adding Guava Leaves to your aquarium:

  • Guava Leaves specifically prevent and eliminate luminous bacteria in Shrimp
  • Tannins released into the water have anti-bacterial properties
  • Free from pesticides, 100% hand-picked

Please note, Guava Leaves will float for a while, before sinking and expanding 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. To reduce the brown discolouration, feel free to soak your leaves for a few days prior to adding to your tank.

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