Jackfruit leaves come from the Artocarpus heterophyllus family native to southwest India. They are closely related to the Mulberry tree and share similar benefits when used in an aquarium.
These leaves are hardy and not fragile like Mulberry leaves.
We highly recommend these leaves to shrimp and fish keepers! Jack fruit leaves provide an abundance of antibacterial and antifungal properties in an aquarium. Similar to Mulberry leaves, these leaves provide excellent nutrition for fish and shrimp and surface growing biofilm, while stimulating breeding and reduces pH levels in your water.
Please soak botanicals overnight or boil to remove potential natural contaminants before introducing them into your tank.
How to use in an aquarium:
- These leaves can be boiled to promote the leaves to sink to the bottom of your aquarium faster or simply rinse the leaves to remove any soil debris.
- Place 1-2 leaves per 10 gallons of aquarium volume.
