-Provide antibacterial properties

-Supplemental food for ornamental shrimp

-Leach tannins into the water and last longer before replacing

The leaves of the Guava tree (Psidium guajava) provide many benefits for aquaria, including their well-documented antibacterial properties and their great value as a supplemental food source for ornamental shrimp.

Our Guava leaves are harvested after they have naturally fallen- an important point with Guava leaves- and will be depleted of chlorophyll, sugars, sap and etc.

Guava leaves dissolve much more slowly than other leaves, and will last longer before requiring replacement! They will leach some tannins into the water, but the coloration will not be nearly as pronounced as that created by Catappa leaves, for example.

ORIGIN: Taiwan Organic

PREPARATION: We recommend that you steep these leaves in boiling water for 10 minutes or so prior to use, which will help soften them a bit, and make them more palatable to shrimp, as well as to foster a "biofilm" on their surfaces, which provides supplemental grazing for shrimp and small fishes, and fry.

All of our aquatic botanicals are intended for ornamental aquarium or terrarium use only. Please use common sense and take the time to boil or soak all botanicals prior to using them, to reduce the possibility of problems. Always go slow when introducing any botanicals into your systems, so you can judge the effect they have on your fishes and plants. They are not intended for human consumption.


NOTE: Since this is a natural product, each leaf will have a unique appearance. The photo is to provide you with an idea of what the leaves will look like and is not a representation of the exact leaves you will be receiving.
