Hydroasis™ Catappa Leaves are one of the most iconic leaf choices for aquariums. The Large catappa leaf is versatile and the perfect addition to any aquarium especially for larger displays. Their broad shape and soft texture make them ideal for blackwater species and an excellent source for grazing animals such as shrimp, Plecostomus and other scavengers. Adding catappa leaves can help create a more calming and healthy environment by providing a variety of enrichment that encourages natural behaviors. Hydroasis™ Catappa Leaves are easy to use - simply add desired amount of leaves to your aquarium.
