Mango Leaves are similar to the catappa leaf, releasing acids and tannins into the water which reduces fish stress and provides antibacterial and antifungal properties. Mango leaves will develop a thin biofilm that surrounds the leaf under normal, healthy tank conditions. When submerged in water, the leaves release tannins and tinge your water a beautiful golden brown.

Benefits: Lower the pH and release humic acid and flavonoids

  • Natural acids soothe fish and shrimp
  • Helpful for breeding fish and shrimp
  • Provides vitamins
  • Antibacterial and antifungal
  • Slow dissolving

Preparation: Mango leaves take longer to sink than catappa leaves.

Boiling for 2-5 minutes before adding to the tank will help them sink faster.
