Introducing Fritz Aquatics Catappa Tea Bags, the perfect solution for harnessing the benefits of tannins in your aquarium. Widely studied and documented, tannins act as natural anti-fungal and anti-bacterial agents, safeguarding your fish and their eggs from infections. With Fritz Catappa Tea Bags, you can control algae growth, manage pest snails and crustaceans, and create an ideal habitat for species that thrive in low pH and soft water.
Catappa leaves have long been utilized in the hobby for their healing properties and their ability to create blackwater biotope aquariums. These leaves serve as shelter, spawning sites, and hiding places for fish, shrimp, and fry. Additionally, they release tannins, lower pH levels, exhibit anti-fungal and anti-bacterial properties, control pest snail populations, and enhance vibrant coloration while promoting increased spawning behavior.
Fritz Catappa Tea Bags offer the benefits of whole leaves with the added convenience of a small bagged package. Simply add these tea bags to your filter for a mess-free application. The antibacterial effect of Catappa Leaves, derived from their naturally occurring substances, persists in the water for up to 10 days after addition. The leaves also serve as a food source, eagerly consumed by shrimp and certain fish. As the leaves gradually decompose, there is no need for their removal.
Experience the transformative effects of Catappa Leaves in your aquarium. Not only do they slightly lower the pH and infuse the water with a beautiful reddish-brown hue, but they also mimic the natural living conditions of fish, providing a more authentic environment. In the wild, fish thrive amidst leaves in rivers and lakes, which inspired the use of Catappa Leaves to recreate these natural settings. With Fritz Aquatics Catappa Tea Bags, you can effortlessly create a captivating and healthy habitat for your aquatic friends.
