TROPICAL KETAPANG SEA ALMOND
(Terminalia catappa) leaves - is a natural agent which effectively improves aquarium water quality.
It creates optimal water conditions, adds natural tannins and slightly lowers the pH level in the aquarium, which helps to create soft and acidic water environment. The important advantage of Ketapang is that it does not affect important and useful filtration bacteria as medicinal preparations do.
The prophylactic properties of sea almond leaves have been recognized and used in natural medicine in numerous countries for ages.
Ketapang leaves help to alleviate ailments caused by asthma, cold, eye inflammation, rheumatism, all types of cuts, gum bleeding and stomach parasites. Asian breeders use sea almond leaves to effectively protect against post-spawning mold of the eggs, applying ketapang directly into the tank or into the filter. This therapy improves the hatch rate and survival rate of the fry.
The leaves are also used to prevent Saprolegnia or Achyla infections, which can be very dangerous for both young and mature fish.
Ketapang leaves accelerate the the regeneration of epidermis, mucus coating and fins, therefore it is recommended to be used when changing water, transporting fish and introducing new fish to the aquarium since all those situations are likely to cause skin abrasion and cuts.
Use one bag for 150-200 l of water, in bigger tanks increase the number of bags commensurately.
Replace old bags with the new ones after 2 weeks.
Use Ketapang when changing water or arranging a new tank to create bilogically balanced environment.
