‘In banana leaves, the available tannins, flavonoids and terpenoids, provide internal parasitic resistance.’
(Marie-Magdeleine et al., 2010; Ademola et al., 2005).


One leaf or two per 10 US gallons (37.8 liters). Rinse and put directly in the aquarium; just let it break down, biofilm will grow. It is not the coloration of the water that determines whether or not there is a lot of tannin, since tannins can be pale to dark.
