Leaf litter and other botanicals (such as cones, pods, seeds, and petals) are a natural part of most freshwater environments, such as blackwater swamp habitats. Many invertebrates and fish make their homes and find refuge in these materials, as do their fry. These botanicals often provide many holistic health benefits to aquatic animals as well as media for microfauna growth.
All of our natural botanicals are sourced from pesticide-free environments and are safe to add to the aquarium. They provide many benefits to aquarium animals and they also act as beautiful naturalistic decor!
