    Exactly what I wanted

    Received a fat stack of vibrant fresh looking leaves, even more attractive than the photos. My shrimp love it; I always keep 1-2 full leaves under their feeding dish.

    Thank you!

    Shrimp love 'em!

    When I ran out of these last time, I had to get the banana leaves since APB was out of the almond leaves. Sadly, the shrimp hardly touched them. For my last order, I saw the almonds were back in stock, so I snapped them up. They were a teeny bit more crumbly this time, but the shrimp sure don't care, so I don't either.

    Dry clean and flexible. I have a smaller tank so I break them in half and only put half in at a time.

    Really, really huge!

    Posted by Heather on 27th Oct 2014

    I have to admit, I thought that I had ordered the small sized leaves so when I opened the package and saw that they were larger than my foot I was a little surprised, but when I checked my order I realized that I had made a mistake and ordered the large leaves. Since I am using them for 3 gallon Betta tanks I just cut the leaves into manageable sizes and float them right on the top. The leaves arrived in pristine condition and I stored them in a cool, dry place so that I will get a few years use out of them. I am exceptionally pleased with the purchase as well as the fast shipping. I received my order within 3 days of placing the order.
