Catappa logs provide the same benefits as catappa leaves, however these will last a longer period of time before breaking down. These logs additionally provide shelter to moulting shrimps, as well as additional surface area for shrimp to feed on. As with all Tantora products, these are 100% organic, ensuring they are free of any harmful toxins or pesticides. We recommend boiling these logs for a few minutes before introducing them to the aquarium, to ensure they sink immediately.
