At Tannin Aquatics, we love providing you with natural materials to help spur your aquatic creativity. The tradition continues with "Igarape de Vida", an interesting assemblage of botanicals and leaves for your aquascaping pleasure! This pack was inspired by images we've seen of the alluring Igarapes of Brazil, which are shallow, meandering blackwater "canoe-ways" filled with leaves, seed pods, and other botanical materials that wind their way through the rain forest. They are home to a remarkable diversity of small fishes, ranging from characins to cichlids. It's a fascinating rainforest habitat to replicate in the aquarium, and this pack will get you off to a good start!
"Igarape de Vida" is a compelling selection of botanicals and leaves that we think evoke the appearance of this environment. It includes 6 gorgeous and durable Magnolia leaves, 6 tannin-packed Nano Catappa leaves, 6 exotic Guava leaves, 5 "Lampada Pods", 2 fibrous Coco Curls, 4 leaf-like "Mariposa Pods", 2 woody "Ceu Fruta", and 1 popular "Savu Pod." It's sufficient to provide great coverage for smaller aquarium (20 US gallons or less), and give a really good start to aquariums up to about 40 gallons. You might want want to supplement this pack with some of your "a la carte" favorites from our site if you have a larger tank, or if you're looking for a more "dense" look. These materials would look great against a variety of mixed-sized substrates.
All in all, "Igarape de Vida" is a unique and earthy-looking pack that will help you create your own interpretation of an exotic Igarape! And...it comes in the uber-cool Tannin jute bag!
