IAL or Indian Almond Leaves have been well accepted in the aquarium hobby for their softening of the water and spawning aids - it also well known for natural medicinal properties.There are many uses when it comes to using dry Indian almond leaves.Inducing Spawning
There is really no specific way of using ketapang leaves for your fish.
Basically, you just need to keep any of the leaves in the water and you will see the water turns yellowish.
When this happens, it means the properties of the leaf have already been released, and they are already working in the tank.
How much to use is a more personal choice with some wanting a darker and more in the tank with some just wanting a pinch - how your fish react is one of the bewst ways to measure.
If I discover my fish is not feeling well and its fins are torn, then I will crumble a larger portion of the leaf with my hand and dump it in the tank.
That way, the properties will release much faster than usual.
If you have a large tank, you can place one whole piece of leaf together with the fish, be it betta, tetras or even arowana.
Breed bettas, you will also need to place a whole piece of leaf on the surface of the water and let it float so that the male betta can make bubble nest when he is ready.
