Question does anyone know anything about this product?

http://www.amazon.co.uk/Aquarium-Fis...ywords=Catappa

is it a IAL alternative? i'm just wondering because i'm looking for a cheaper alternative to the real IAL for my betta. i know about oak leaves already but can't get them very easily. so does anyone know about this product?


If I have drawn a picture for you, full size versions are available on my DA page

Looks like this is the official name of Indian Almond Leaves. I've not used it but looks to be the same thing basically. We have some IAL extract but so far I think just putting a piece of a leave in the tank does better as far as coloring the tank up. If you aren't going for color and just want the health benefits, I'd think it would be fine to use.

Amy Lim on ebay. Her IAL is cheap and quality. That is an extract but is not as fresh when you can make your own tea with IAL leaves. It is possible to lose some tannin quality in the extraction process imo. This has been way cheaper in the long run for me. That may be a good product idk as Ive never used it myself.
