A leaf to keep in your shrimp tank for a long time!

  • Slowly releases tannin;
  • Sinks easily and remains rigid for a long time;
  • An excellent support for biofilm.

Plant jackfruit or scientific name Artocarpus heterophyllus. From India, jackfruit leaves could have many benefits (more studies are needed), and have shown the presence of sapogenins, cycloartenone, cycloartenol, β-sitosterol (Nath and Chaturvedi 1989), and tannins. It has been proven that all parts of jackfruit, including the leaves and even the thorny outer skin, is edible. The leaves are rich in iron, support biofilm and last longer than many other aquarium leaves.


First, boil the jackfruit leaves for 10 minutes, they will release some of their tannins.
Recommendation: one leaf per 10 or 15 US gallons (37 liters) which can be replaced after 6 months, or not, to increase the biolfim.
