About Catappa

  • Rich in Tannin which has antibacterial and antifungal properties, this helps reduce the chances of bacterial infections to improve aquarium animals’ health.

With various benefits, these are the reasons why Tantora Catappa products are popular among aquarium hobbyists. Tantora’s organic products have been trusted among shrimp and fish keepers in the European and US market for over 5 years. 


Tantora Catappa Leaves are Premium Grade. Each leaf is hand selected and has been put through a hygienic cleaning process. 


The leaves come in 3 sizes suitable for different sizes of tanks.

  • Size Nano suits smaller aquariums. We recommend using 1 leaf per 10-15 litres of water.

  • Size M suits medium size aquariums. We recommend using 1 leaf per 30 litres of water.

  • Size XL suits large size aquariums. We recommend using 1 leaf per 50 litres of water.



First choose the size of Tantora Catappa leaves that suits the size of your aquarium. After putting the leaf into the tank, it will gradually release substances which benefits fish and shrimp. The leaf will sink to the bottom of the tank within 24 hours and will soften after a few days, which will also be nutritious organic food for fish and shrimps.


The leaf will need to be replaced every  7-14 days.


Tip : For shrimp breeders who’d like to feed their shrimp with Catappa leaves without blackening the water, try putting the leaves in boiling water for 10-20 minutes before putting it in the tank.
