The Autumn Leaves set, brown leaves contains dried leaves of the tree species walnut, red oak, beech, oak, chestnut and apple only in brown color and therefore look very natural in the aquarium.
In nature, foliage or leaves are generally an important nutritional component of invertebrates, e.g. shrimp, crayfish, crabs but also snails. Specially shrimps usually comes from smaller rivers with trees on the riparian zone. Here, leaves, smaller branches and especially in the fall quite a number of foliage in the streams are registered, which then begin to decompose over time by bacetria and microorganisms and thus serve the shrimp as an important (often also overwhelming) food base.
The various tree species and their leaves into the Autumn Leaves set, brown leaves contain a wide variety of inhalants, e.g. minerals, tannins and humic substances, various oils, trace elements and much more. The metabolism of shrimps, crayfish, crabs and others need them for their metabolism, to strengthen the immune system, for a good digestion, or food utilization and more.
When choosing the Autumn Leaves set, brown leaves, we paid attention to a good mix ... some leaves are quite stable in the aquarium under water (for example oak), others (for example beech and walnut) start to soften much faster. Over a long period of time, the shrimp find leaves in the appropriate "stage of maturity" and plunge with enthusiasm.

For each 20 liters of aquarium water about 2 - 4 leaves (depending on the size of the leaves) or a few more. Also depending on the number of e.g. shrimp.
After the leaves have been eaten or completely decomposed, they can be renewed if necessary.
Initially, the dry leaves swim at the water surface, but suck more or less quickly full and then sink to the ground.
If necessary, you can accelerate the process by brewing the dry leaves with boiling water and allowing to simmer.
