Banana leaves are similar to Indian Almond leaves; especially in their properties and time they need to decay. Leaf litter is the best source of biofilm in our tanks. Big and small shrimp love to graze on it.
The leaves will decompose over time and it is perfectly safe for them to remain in the tank.
Please soak botanicals overnight or boil to remove potential natural contaminants before introducing them into your tank.
