Fritz Cattapa Leaves

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.
