The leaves of the banana tree (Musa sp. Var. Sapientum) have been successfully used in Asia for many years. They have been used by successful ornamental fishermen for a long time, as well as almond leaves for the prevention and treatment of diseases such as. e.g. fungal diseases Perforated disease in cichlids ectoparasites mucosal damage bite wounds Fin rot Spawn mushroom used. Especially Asian fighting fish breeders swear by banana leaves and use them even more successfully as almond leaves, as they improve the color of the fish and continue to have a very positive effect on the spawning readiness (especially in combat - Betta splendens like Halfmoon, poster, etc.) of the fish. Especially with very sensitive species, such as The Albis or Simplex banana leaves are an excellent alternative to almond tree leaves, as these often can not be used there due to the water values. The term banana tree leaves, which one also often finds, is not correct insofar as the banana is not a tree but a perennial plant, which, however, develops a rather strong pseudotripe, which is formed from the leaf sheaths of the leaves. application In Europe, dried banana leaves are still an insider tip among aquarists, and some European breeders have been using them successfully for some time. That the level of awareness of banana leaves is not so high, may also be due to the fact that the availability of leaves is still rather low. Some time ago, the leaves also started talking to our local aquarists, who used leaves from European banana trees. The success was indeed present, but only small. This may have been due to the fact that the leaves of the perennials grown here by the less intense sun exposure only a fraction of the desired ingredients have as perennial leaves from Asia. Our banana leaves are just as gently harvested and treated as our almond leaves. They are free of pesticides and harmful bacteria. dosage Depending on the need, there are two ways of dosing: For general prevention of diseases, for color improvement and to promote well-being, 1 to 2 leaves are added to the water per each fish. For intensive treatment against diseases or to promote spawning readiness, 3 to 5 l of aquarium water are given a banana leaf in the aquarium water. The leaves absorb water in the course of 48 to 72 hours (you can accelerate by submerging them) and slowly release their active ingredients to the aquarium water within 1 to 2 weeks. After that, the effect is exhausted and they can be exchanged. Like almond leaves, however, they are eaten up by armor catfish and crustaceans.
