If you keep ornamental shrimp, you're going to LOVE these leaves!
It's long been known that Mulberry leaves provide carbohydrates, fiber, and essential nutrients, such as phytosetrols, which are essential to shrimp for optimum health and reproduction. Unlike many of the prepackaged Mulberry products out there, these are largely intact leaves, not broken pieces of leaves. This makes ours a great value as well as a great supplemental shrimp food!
Mulberry leaves are surprisingly nutritious supplemental foods for shrimp, as they're packed full of vital nutrients, like Vitamins B1, B2, B6, and Vitamin C, as well as carbohydrates, fiber, amino acids, and elements such as Magnesium, Potassium, Zinc, Iron, and Calcium!
Ours are from the Morus indica tree, found throughout Malaysia and Southeast Asia, and have a delicate, beautiful color and thin tissue. They're freshly collected and carefully cleaned, boiled, and dried. They have no preservatives, pesticides, or pollutants. Just pure, carefully handled leaves.
Origin: Sandakan, Sabah Malaysia
PREPARATION: To feed to your shrimp, we recommend rinsing them in very warm water, then simply drop them in the aquarium, or fasten them to a rock or piece of wood. Your shrimp will go crazy for these!
All of our aquatic botanicals are intended for ornamental aquarium or terrarium use only. Please use common sense and take the time to boil or soak all botanicals prior to using them, to reduce the possibility of problems. Always go slow when introducing any botanicals into your systems, so you can judge the effect they have on your fishes and plants. They are not intended for human consumption. DO NOT INGEST!
NOT FOR HUMAN CONSUMPTION
NOTE: Due to natural variations of leaves, each one will appear different. The photo is a representation of what to expect.
