When added to aquariums, cashew leaves can create a beneficial biofilm that is beneficial for shrimp and catfish. Additionally, in terrariums, the leaves can serve as visual barriers and hiding spots for the inhabitants. Overall, cashew leaves can be a useful addition to the environment of aquariums and terrariums.

Cashew Leaves QTY. 10

Cashew leaves are a popular choice for aquarium enthusiasts looking to promote a natural environment. They are often used as leaf litter in the aquarium, providing shelter for fish fry, small shrimp, and other aquatic creatures while maintaining a natural look. Cashew leaves also serve as a growth medium for biofilm and diatoms, which can be important food sources for aquatic animals.

Additionally, cashew leaves have pH buffering qualities and can slowly lower the pH of the aquarium as they decompose. This is beneficial for aquatic animals that require acidic, low-pH water. They also have antibacterial and anti-fungal properties and can support slime coat, scale, and shell production in fish and invertebrates.
