Dennerle Shrimp King Dadap Leaves is a foliage food for shrimps and crayfish.
In the natural biotopes of shrimps and crayfish, fallen leaves play an important role in their diet. The animals love to graze on decomposing leaves with the biofilm growing on them.
For a biologically balanced diet, vegetarian food should therefore be a regular part of the menu for all shrimps and crayfish. The leaves of the Indian coral tree - known as "Dadap" in their native country - are 100% natural and an optimal food supplement for all freshwater dwarf shrimps. They are freshly picked, hand-picked and gently dried. It is characterised by a high content of essential vitamins, minerals, trace elements, amino acids and plant enzymes. In addition, they provide valuable dietary fibre that promotes digestion. Due to their high protein content of approx. 30%, they are often used as high-quality farm animal feed in their home countries.
As a natural supplementary food, ShrimpKing Dadap Leaves are excellent for variety and supplementing the main food. The dry leaves soak up water in the aquarium and sink to the bottom within 1 - 2 days. A biofilm of bacteria, fungi and other microorganisms forms on the surface and ferments ("predigests") the leaf tissue. This natural growth is enthusiastically grazed by the shrimp. It contains all the nutrients and nutritive substances they need every day. The fibres in the leaves act as dietary fibres and promote healthy digestion. Valuable secondary plant substances strengthen the body's defences and support healthy development.
ShrimpKing Dadap Leaves ensure healthy, balanced growth, more vitality and reproductive joy. ShrimpKing Dadap Leaves have also proven themselves in professional keeping and breeding of Caridina and Neocaridina species as a nutritionally high-quality supplementary food. As the biological decomposition takes approx. 1 - 2 weeks, each animal has enough opportunity to feed. Feeding stress is eliminated, which is particularly advantageous for animals that are less assertive and juveniles. In the end, only the filigree leaf skeleton remains.
- Particularly nutritious due to high, natural protein content (approx. 30%)
- With essential vitamins, minerals, trace elements, amino acids and numerous secondary plant substances
- With high, natural calcium content (approx. 1,5%) for a strong shell and problem-free moulting of shrimps and crayfish
- With valuable plant enzymes and digestive fibre (approx. 23%)
