People argue that they improve water quality and make the conditions better suited for shrimps, but I like it because my CRS/CBS use it as food. It's always covered with shrimps. Even the tiny shrimplets graze on it.

I replace them every six weeks or so when they're covered with holes.

I order 400 leaves at a time and they last for 9 months to 1 year.
I use to much of them, with every water change I put 10 - 20 leaves in my tank, I like the look of black water and It nicely lowers my ph and softens the water for my South American fish.

I order freshly collected leaves every winter from a high quality supplier overseas, they aren't ironed and graded, theyre just the best.

I have some left, but they aren't as fragrant as they were back in January and February.
