Teak Leaves - 9" - 24"+......all prices include free shipping to all countries via airmail.
The leaves of the Teak tree (Tectona grandis ) have long been used in the same way as Indian Almond leaves (Terminalia Catappa) by South Asian Bagan plakat breeders/keepers.
Super Bagans are plakat fighting fish, with champion blood line fighting strains dating back to the 1800's in Indonisa, Thailand, Malaysia and Vietnam. They have really good body structures, really tough scales and hardly any fat has the Teak leaves burn off the fat leaving the fish very muscular and agile.
Unlike the Indian Almond leaves, Teak leaves do not colour your Aquarium water the same way, the colour is much lighter so they are ideal for Aquarists who want the benefits of Indian Almond Leaves with out the tea stain colour.
Due to their size Bettawan's Teak Leaves are sold in weight rather than set amounts of leaves. This is purely for shipping purposes to so that we can keep the cost of the leaves at a very reasonable price. If any customers would prefare whole 100% perfect leaves please email stating numbers required and we will come back to you with a price.
After we have gathered the Teak leaves they are stored in our dry room. The Teak Leaves are then gently washed, we then sun dry/ press the Teak leaves, the Teak leaves are then boxed and stored. When we get a order we then un-box the Teak leaves and clean them once again, using a soft brush, making sure there are no signs of dust, small insects/eggs, seeds, soil, mould or moisture. We then bag the Teak leaves in clear plastic bags and box them ready for shipping. We use sturdy boxes provided by the thai post office...these boxes cannot be sealed. They have a lip that slots into a flap on the side of the box. String is then tied around the box to stop the box from opening in transit. We state on the box and the package the contents. (eg. Aquatic Goods : 100 gram Dried Teak Leaves " Tectona Grandis "). Customs seem to be happy with this way of posting as all customs have to do is untie the string and check the contents. If ok they retie the string and send the parcel to customer.
Price includes shipping via airmail from Thailand to the address of your choice. Upon confirmation of payment through PayPal, the leaves will be dispatched via airmail usually taking 10 - 14 working days. We will also send via email attachment, 2 pictures of the leaves boxed and unboxed and a copy of the post office receipt to confirm postage.
We are members of several tropical fish forums and have supplied the Teak leaves to customers in Australia, U.S.A., Canada, Europe, South Korea and Japan.
