I know shells raise PH because of calcium. I am pretty sure tannins lower PH and driftwood creates tannins.

Yep. I believe that is why shells raise ph. Driftwood when it decomposes produces tannins which lowers ph.

I hope to get IAL they produce tannins and if the leaver are left in the tank it could be a betta toy.

I've heard they can be very beneficial, especially for bettas.

Do you have to order it off line? Most stores near me don't sell it. Not even the Betta shop..

For plants I'd get some hornwort and let it float around in there. It grows fast and doesn't have roots so it doesn't need to be buried in substrate. It also helps control algae and its good for bettas to blow their bubble nests on.

Quick heads up. PET SMART GAVE ME A 10 GALLON TANK FOR MY TROUBLE!

Tank 1: 25gal tank RIP
Tank 2: Snake habitat. Home to Albino Sand Boa Lily
Other Pets: minpin (Sugar) and rat terrier (Missy)

Is a fishkeeper still a fishkeeper when they no longer have fish to keep?
