Our Soursop Leaves provide many benefits for tropical fish aquariums. When submerged in water, the leaves will release tannins and tinge your aquarium water in beautiful golden-brown color. They are perfect for recreating black water habitats. Additionally, like many other botanicals, they will lower the pH and release other beneficial organic compounds such as humic acids and flavonoids. These substances are understood to have antimicrobial properties and may also absorb and detoxify other harmful compounds or heavy metals sometimes present in tap water such zinc, copper, and aluminum. For these reasons, all fish will benefit from the presence of the Mango Leaves in their habitat.
Our Leaves are completely natural and free of any pesticides or herbicides. They are collected by hand after they had fallen from the trees and then they are cleaned and sun dried before being packaged. They range in sizes from small to medium to large.
