Fritz Dark Water Almond Leaf Extract is a natural water conditioner containing concentrated tannis from the leaves of the Terminalia catappa tree, also known as as Indian Almond Leaves. These tannins will create a more natural environment for Bettas, shrimp and other fish. Almond leaves contain humic acids and tannins which are known to have antibacterial properties, naturally lower pH and create blackwater conditions in the aquarium. Fritz Dark Water Almond Leaf Extract is suitable for all soft-water fish including betta, discus, tetras, angelfish, and killifish.
Directions & Dosage
1 tsp (5ml) per One U.S. Gallon (3.8L) or 6 drops per cup (236 mL).
Add to new water during water changes. Avoid overdosing. Above dose will deliver 1 ppm tannin.
Easy to use and made my bettas happy. Arrived quickly.
Thanks for the tip on adding Dark Water to my tank, I feel it was the difference in my being able to properly care for my betta. I've never had success in keeping them in the past but with Dark Water added he's doing great! Thanks again
I love this stuff works great, super easy to use not a huge fan of using the leaves myself I was so excited when I saw the product review on they're YouTube Chanel.
THE PRODUCT: Purchased to help with my betta care. Used a little less than directions as I am a noob betta keeper and didn't want to accidentally overdose. Still tinted the tank slightly so looking forward to the benefits the almond leaf extract will deliver. Directions are simple. Really happy with the product. PURCHASE EXPERIENCE: Easy checkout (inexpensive)and fast delivery with excellent communications. Products (bought two bottles) arrived in a zip lock (thicker than a sandwich bag) and paper packing material. No mess. I also enjoy KGTropicals You Tube videos where I learned about this product, other products and fish keeping.
Thank you for selling this product it has worked beautifully.
I saw John’s video on the product I was skeptical at first because I usually don’t like dark tannins but you can hardly tell the difference great product would definitely buy again.
I really like watching John and Lisa's YouTube videos and Lisa's love for bettas is starting to rub off on me! I saw John's video reviewing this product and wanted to give it a try. I'm still on my first betta but I've already had some issues with what I think is fin rot. I managed to clear it up but I want to make sure I give my little guy every chance at a happy, healthy life so I wanted to add this to my maintenance routine. I dosed my tank and the water isn't discolored at all. I'll have enough to treat a few more times--or maybe I just need another betta tank!
I saw John demostrating this product on their Youtube channel and had to have it!! Like John, I DO NOT like the tea colored water in my aquariums but would like the benefits of almond leaves. This is a great product and currently using in two tanks (both 8 gallons) with almost zero change in water clarity! The other bonus...customer service is excellent, great communication and SUPER fast delivery.
Thank you guys!!
Lets start by saying service was exceptional. Received great communication and delivery was in 2 days! I added this to my 3 gal Betta tank and my guy seems a bit more active, dancing around the tank at times. So much better than having dead leaves on the tank bottom!
