Bakuli Pods are from the Lagerstroemia parviflora (crape-myrtle) tree from the mixed forests of India. They have a walnut-like outer shell and wooden interior and provide a fair amount of tannins. Scatter them in the bottom of your aquarium to give the appearance of a natural tropical river.
The tannins from Bakuli seed pods are slowly released into the water. These tannins have many different benefits:
- They slightly increase the acidity of the water.
- Inhibitory effect on bacteria and diseases.
- Stain the water slightly brown.
- Helps to mimic the natural habitat of animals.
Contains approx. 20 pods

We’d recommend a starting quantity of about 6-8 for every 60 liters of aquarium water, although there is no hard and fast rule about this. Bakuli seed pods can lower the pH of soft water surprisingly quickly while imparting a nice brownish tint.
