What are Swell Mangrove Leaves?

Swell Mangrove Leaves are 100% natural and sustainably harvested. Add these natural products to your aquarium/vivarium to create a natural look that both you and your beloved pets will enjoy.

Swell Mangrove Leaves, like other botanicals, have a number of benefits when placed inside an aquarium, including:

  • Supply important humins that plants use to grow
  • Naturally tan water, creating a ‘blackwater effect’ that simulates wild-like conditions
  • Gently decrease pH, making water more suitable for certain species
  • Tanning agents released have anti-microbial properties, promoting better health and vitality
  • Serve as a breeding ground for microfauna readily eaten by small predatory fish, shrimps, and crabs

How do I add Swell Mangrove Leaves to an aquarium?

Prior to placing Mangrove Leaves in your aquarium, it’s a good idea to boil them in fresh water. This will remove any lingering bacteria and waterlog them, increasing the chances that it’ll sink when you finally add it to your aquarium.

After boiling your Mangrove Leaves, strain them and then add them to your aquarium. If pre-boiled, or left for a day or two, the Mangrove Leaves will sink and start to release humins and tanning agents.

As a natural product, Mangrove Leaves won’t last forever and they will slowly start to break down and lose their effectiveness. It’s recommended that you replace your Mangrove Leaves once they start to break down. This pack contains 10 Mangrove Leaves.
