 One  good  learning  here  and  that  is  the  straw  technique  on  cleaning  left  over  food  rather  than  siphoning

 Deepak  
 I  just  put  the  almonds  leaves  crushed  in  the  old  style  water  filter  (made  of  cloth  and  fibre)  which  filters  only  big  dirt  particles
 and  keep  it  in  the  tank.

 Yes,  I  know  that  IAL  improves  the  immune  system  of  Bettas.  But,  does  it  do  the  same  for  other  species  or  not?  That  is,  if  it  does  means,  we  can  try  these  IAL  with  sensitive  fish  like  Neon  Tetras..  Right..!!?
 Jst  curious  to  know..  That's  all..  Thumbs Up

 Keluthi...
 IAL  is  also  called  Indian  magic  leafs.  Very  good  for  any  tropical  fish  which  needs  soft  water.  Its  got  Humic  acids  and  tanins  and  other  extracts..  that  fights  bactaria  and  absorbs  harmful  chemicals.
 People  also  use  peat,  dry  Jackfruit  leaves  and  tea  which  are  not  so  good  as  IAL  but  have  similar  extracts.  
 Nothing  beats  IAL.

 Has  anyone  noticed  that  most  of  the  leaves  we  find  are  covered  in  shit  or  some  cottony  fungus  growth  ?  How  do  we  clean  these  ones.  There  are  3  trees  in  my  building  and  at  certain  times  in  the  year  hundreds  of  leaves  will  fall  but  hardly  7-8  will  be  clean  enough  to  use  after  a  light  wash

 Anyways..  I  don't  put  them  directly  in  betta  tank.  I  dry  them  in  sun  first.  Dry  like  papad.  Then  I  dip  them  in  separate  water  for  ten  minutes  and  then  I  clean  the  leaf  with  my  hand  under  a  tap.  And  when  I  am  sure..  only  then  I  put  them  in  tank.

 I  usually  wash  it  under  warm  water  and  then  leave  in  the  sun  to  dry  for  a  couple  of  days  then  use  directly  in  the  tank.  I  just  use  a  clip  to  hold  it  submerged  by  the  stems
