Peruvian Marupa Leaf litter not only helps with providing a naturalistic appearance but the leaves also provide hiding spots for animals such as dart frogs. Additionally, microfauna like springtails and isopods will use the decomposing Marupa leaves as food. In the forest, the leaf litter may be several inches thick. Typically in tanks, you want to have the leaves at least a few layers deep and you should routinely add Leaf Litter as you see them decomposing. The Peruvian Marupa leaves make a great addition to the naturalistic decor. They are harvested in Peru from areas that are free from pesticides, herbicides, and fungicides. The majority of the leaves that you will receive are dry, brown and very few are broken or in pieces.
*Please note our Peruvian Marupa leaves are measured by weight and not the number of leaves per bag
