In the natural biotopes of shrimps and crabs, fallen leaves play an important role in the diet. The animals love to graze decomposing leaves with the biofilm growing on them. For a biologically balanced diet, vegetarian food should therefore be a regular feature on the menu of all shrimp and crabs. 

The leaves of the Indian coral tree - known as "Dadap" in its native country - are 100% natural and an optimal food supplement for all freshwater dwarf shrimps. The leaves are freshly picked, hand-picked and gently dried.

They are characterized by a high content of essential vitamins, minerals, trace elements, amino acids and plant enzymes. In addition, they provide valuable dietary fibre that aids digestion. Due to their high protein content of approx. 30%, they are often used in their home countries as high-quality livestock feed. 

Shrimp King Dadap Leaves is a natural supplementary food and is an excellent addition to 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 that ferment ("pre-digest") the leaf tissue forms on the surface. This natural growth is enthusiastically grazed by the shrimps. It contains all the nutrients and building blocks that they need on a daily basis. The fibres of the leaves act as fibre and promote healthy digestion. Valuable secondary plant substances strengthen the body's defences and support healthy development. Shrimp King Dadap Leaves ensure healthy, balanced growth, more vitality and the joy of reproduction.

Shrimp King Dadap Leaves have also proven their worth in the professional keeping and breeding of Caridina and Neocaridina species as a nutritionally high-quality supplementary food. As the biological decomposition takes about 1-2 weeks, every animal has enough opportunity to eat. There is no food stress, which is especially advantageous for less assertive animals and young animals. In the end only the filigree leaf skeleton remains. 

Professional tip: Shrimp King Dadap Leaves are perfect as a natural supply food for weekends or holidays - without unnecessarily polluting the water. Simply put them into the aquarium before your holiday and you can go on holiday relaxed, with a clear conscience that your beloved shrimps are optimally supplied.

Shrimp King Dadap Leaves are also ideal as a food supplement for dwarf crayfish (CPOs), snails and growth-eating catfish (e.g. Ancistrus species).
