Dry leaves are fine forever. I usually never remove the ones in tanks but I do get tired of the gunk they make as they decompose (though I've never had issues with fish from this).

Just curious... What are Indian almond leaves and what can you use them for? I saw a video and it said that Bettas like to rest on them and it helps prefer illness.

Indian Almond Leaves (IAl) are found in Bettas natural habitat and contains a chemical that acts as antioxidants which kills bacteria and helps the scales to strengthen. Using IAL is a natural method to make the fish stronger, healthier, recover from illnesses and more reproductive.

Thanks! So putting it in from time to time is a good idea?

Definitely :)

Another thing: the decomposition of the leaves is great for spawn tanks. I don't tend to take mine out (unless there is mold) as it introduces infusoria, a tiny organism that feeds the fry (it helps, trust me xD) between live plants and the leaves are key ;) it's great.

I'd say its a good idea. Indian Almond Leaves have alot of antibacterial properties which minimize the chances of bacterial infections, improve health, stimulate the natural environment of fish who hail from soft, acidic waters, stimulate breeding conditions and harden scales which does minimize skin diseases and pathogens resulting in bacterial infections that dwell on the epidermis of the fish. Also Stimulates Color, Prevents Parasites, Relieves stress and helps your fish recover from illnesses..

Only bad part is if you don't like the look of yellowish/brown water. But will make your betta fish happier and healthier!
