Longan leaves have not yet made their mark yet in the west but in parts of Asia, they are the cure-all for many fish ailments and the go-to cure for turtle keepers to treat gastrointestinal parasites. Fishkeepers that use Longan leaves claim they balance the PH of the aquarium, fight fungus kills parasites and help with the conditioning of exhausted fish.
