Natural Jackfruit Leaves x20
Premium Quality Natural Jackfruit 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. Natural Jackfruit Leaves have been used by fish keepers to impart tannins into their aquarium water, much in the same way Catappa, Guava, or other leaves. Jackfruit contains phytonutrients, such as lignans, isoflavones, and saponins that have health benefits that are wide ranging.
Jackfruit leaves release tannins, and last longer than Catappa leaves in the aquarium. Jackfruit 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 Jackfruit Leaves are hand-picked and foil-packed for freshness, releasing optimum tannins and lasting longer than inferior brands. Replace every 3-5 weeks - please note, shrimp, plecs and snails will consume leaves so may break them down sooner.
Benefits of adding Jackfruit Leaves to your aquarium:
- Jackfruit 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, Jackfruit 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.
