CaribSea Jungle Leaf - Indian Almond Leaf
Indian or Tropical Almond leaves, also known as Catappa or Ketapang leaves are used by fish breeders worldwide to recreate the natural environment of tropical fish and invertebrates such as bettas, tetras, corys, angelfish, discus, freshwater shrimp and other species that come from soft-water jungle or rice paddy habitats. The natural tannins released by these unusual leaves are touted for their many health and biological benefits, and the “soft cover” created by these leaves give your tropicals shelter similar to what would be found in their native ecosystem. These leaves can also be used as a forest floor substrate for arthropods, tropical reptiles and amphibians. Betta Leaf™ and the somewhat larger Jungle Leaf™ are the perfect addition to your tropical environment.
