What do Mulberry leaves do in a Peppermint BN tank?

Recommended Posts

they can eat it though i've more heard of it beng used in shrimp tanks as a food source. after a day or 2 of soaking it creates a bio-film which the shrimp absolutely love. its in a way similar to spinach although it doesn't have quite as much nutrients (ie. iron etc). there is alot of debate as to how exactly to use it though... some blanch in boiled water, some boil in water for a few minutes, some soak in a bucket for a day or 2, some freeze first and some just chuck it in fresh from the tree... again this is mainly for shrimp but i guess the same would apply to any algae eaters...

hope it helps
