Perhaps you want to do a nano tank with some small leaves...like, really small leaves-or pieces of them. Or maybe you simply want to build up a more 'enriched" substrate by including some leaf materials- but you don't want to use a whole bunch of large leaves...Or maybe, just maybe- you like the "tint" that leaves bring, but you don't want to have those leaves in your tank. You'd rather keep them in a filter sock, reactor, or other location outside of the display itself.
For all of these reasons, and dozens we can't even think of at the moment- we offer you Tannin "Mixed Leaf Media."
Simply, a "variety pack" of some of the different types of leaves we offer- Catappa, Guava, Loquat, Mangrove, Artocarpus, Jackfruit, Magnolia- in a convenient "crushed" form. The mix varies all the time, so you can get a nice variety of leave types- and hence, their unique tannin-producing attributes- all in one small pack.
PREPARATION: Prep "MLM" like you would any of our other leaf products, with a 10-minute steep in boiling water, or an overnight soak in freshwater, followed by a quick rinse.
All of our aquatic botanicals are intended for ornamental aquarium or terrarium use only. Please use common sense and take the time to boil or soak all botanicals prior to using them, to reduce the possibility of problems. Always go slow when introducing any botanicals into your systems, so you can judge the effect they have on your fishes and plants. They are not intended for human consumption. DO NOT INGEST!
NOT FOR HUMAN CONSUMPTION
NOTE: Due to natural variations of leaves, each one will appear different. The photo is a representation of what to expect.
