26 in stock
These Cocoa Leaves come from India as well as other parts of Asia and Africa . The leaves of the cocoa tree are versatile in aquaristics. They are very similar to sea almond tree leaves. Just like these, coco leaves have a high amount of humic substances. This property promotes the health of the aquarium inhabitatns.
For shrimps, the very slowly decomposing coco leaves form a natural hiding place and a near-natural replica of their habitat. At the same time, they serve as a food source. Microorganisms settle on their surface and form the optimal addition to any grazing water animal's diet. Their bright colouring also creates a beautiful effect in the aquarium.
These have a large variation in size and will offer mixed sizes per order. They range from 8-15 inches
As with other botanicals, we recommend you boil these 5-10 minutes prior to use. Let them cool down before placing them in your tanks.
These are big. Like… Really big. Kieth knows how to find some good sources and it shows with his botanical selection! I break these apart for tanks and throw them directly in.
