Leaves of the walnut tree are known to have antibacterial and antifungal properties. They contain many vitamins that help with digestion, fertility and intensify the colors. It is not without reason that they have been used successfully in aquariums for many years. The walnut leaves release a lot of tannins into the aquarium water, which can cause the water to discolor significantly.
In the rainforests of the Amazon region or rivers and streams in China, many dead leaves fall into the water. The leaves release tannic acids and humic substances into the water, lowering the pH and hardness. Walnut leaves are a particularly suitable tool to simulate these natural conditions in the aquarium. The decay of the leaves also stimulates microbiological life. This improves the natural, biological balance!
Vegetable-eating fish, such as many L-numbers and other animals like to eat the walnut leaves and this is a good change to a varied diet. Fish feel at home among the fallen leaves and corydoras and dwarf cichlids in particular like to hide under the leaves.
Shrimp also love it because of the many microscopic foods it contains! Walnut leaves also contain substances that prevent algae growth and the decorative value in biotope aquariums makes this product a seriously underestimated natural product!
