    A must have for shrimp

    Posted by Mike on 31st May 2014

    These MD Large leaves are huge, about the size of my hand! I rinsed one of them off in a glass dish of aquarium water, then refilled the dish, set a little rock on it for two days until it was good and slimy...then cut it into about 4 pieces and dropped them into my shrimp tank. The little shrimplets came running from nowhere to play with the new jungle gym of leaves. These are a hit in my shrimp tank. I will be using these from now on.

    Thanks again Ron! Excellent products!

    As Described

    The leaves arrived promptly and in good shape. They are large and I tore off a few pieces to soak and then place in my nano tank. I am glad that I soaked them as they did release a lot of tannins. The shrimp and snails are enjoying them and they look very natural in the tank.

    too big!

    Posted by Unknown on 14th Jan 2014

    When it says Md/Large, I figured they would be about big enough to cover someone's hand... They're huge! More like very large than md/large. It's alright, I just cut them into thirds and it seems to be working very well.
    They look really good, and arrived in almost perfect condition. One or two of them had a small tear, but like the description says, the fish and shrimp couldn't care less.

    These leaves were not large they were enormous! They arrived in excellent condition, not that it matters to me if they were broken, but it just shows how carefully things are packed for shipment. Thanks you!
