i have tea bags of IAL and placed one in each of the large tanks last night, and woke up this morning to find Rama had torn open the bag and scattered the little pieces all over his tank but since having in his tank he has perked up soo much

my boys love IAL. they make the prettiest bubble nests when there's any in their tanks. i'm all out, though. D: i wish i had some. they'd make Dante's tail grow back faster, and would help Cup's heal back up as well. i wonder how Theo would react to IAL in his tank...?

I leave my leaves in the tanks until they fall apart.. then I suck em up with the gravel vac. IME they will continue to leach tannins even after sinking.. usually one leaf lasts me 2-3 water changes (these are bare bottom 1 or 2 gallon tanks).. after that I leave the sunken leaf in and add another.

If you use them until they fall apart you can really get your money's worth from them. I've made a 100 leaf bag last almost a year.... time to order more!

Theyre a reasonable price.
