Secret Recipe for Breeding Tropical Fish

Ketapang leaves are used by tropical fish farm breeders and fish hobbyist to create brackish water or k-water extract to promote healing and breeding for tropical fishes, such as Guppies, Betas, Arowanas, Tetras, Gouramis, Apistos, etc...

Beside creating a natural environment and induces spawning, it also controls or reduces the PH level of water, thus it is also one of the best aquarium water conditioner . They are known to have antibacteria, antifungal, stress relieve and immune boosting properties for all tropical fishes too.

Harvesting & Preparations

Only organic leaves are selectively harvested or collected from leaves that have naturally turned yellow and just fallen from the tree. Not those leaves that had fallen and turned brownish and dried as they had already lost most of its natural beneficial properties to the ground.

After harvesting, the leaves are individually cleaned, quality checked and left naturally dried to preserve all the beneficial properties. Thus, the leaves are of the highest quality maintaining their natural nutrients which are very rich in texture and deep coloration. Only premium large leaves of length 7 inches and above are for sale.


Simply rinse them with tap water before putting them into your aquarium tank. After 1-2 days the leaves will be water-logged and sink. This will leave a strong brown dye that will tan the water slightly (to a clear amber) and provide a very natural stream-bottom look to your aquarium. This dye consists of tanic acid and other organic materials that emulates the natural environment of most tropical fishes. Remove the leaves from the tank after 10 days.

Brackish Water or Black Water

Alternatively, you can boil the leaves to make blackwater extract and dose when you need. Soaking the leaves in a tank for 10 days will produce a similar result.

Recommended dosage would be 1 leave to 20 liters of water for 10 days, thus 10 leaves to a 200 liter tank.
