These Red Oak leaves come from the mixed forests of the northern Blackforest and the Schönbuch region in southwestern Germany, large woodlands with clean air. All leaves are harvested directly from the trees in the autumn, not taken from the ground, thereby ensuring optimum quality. For freshwater shrimps, leaf litter is an important element of their natural habitats. In an aquarium, brown oak leaves are well suited as natural hiding places for shrimps. The jagged shape of the Red Oak leaves makes them an especially interesting material for a natural, authentic decoration; they are an eyecatcher in every aquarium. Oak litter also serves as food. The leaves are not eaten directly, but the shrimps rather feed on the microorganisms that develop on them, slowly decomposing the litter.
Compared with several other tree species, oak leaves have a long decomposition period and therefore a long application time.
In general, leaves with an especially long decomposition period should be present in each aquarium as hiding places.
- Harvested directly from the tree
- Provides shrimps with both food and cover
- Improves living conditions for shrimps
- For authentic habitat structuring
- Decorative jagged shape
- Very slowly decomposing
1 leaf per 20 l water. For the Nano version, 2 leaves per 20 l water. Leaves can remain in the water until they are completely decomposed. The feeding can be repeated after 1-2 weeks.
At least 20 brown, dried Red Oak leaves, in a resealable zip bag for ideal stock-keeping.
100 % Red Oak (Quercus robur)
