I won 50 IAL in a raffle once and I use them occasionally in both my 5 gal and my sorority/community. Odysseus love his, and the tannins make the tank look amazing. He bubblenests a lot more with the leaf in.

The girl and the community fish seem pretty indifferent about it, but it helps buffer the filter somewhat, which they seem to prefer. :)

I ordered some of these last night from Ms. Lim. Is use of the leaves compatible with other plants like Anacharis and anubias?

The tannin don't HOWEVER if you favor having a lot of tannin in the tank than you'll need to make sure you have enough light to work through it to your plants. High light plants may not fare well depending on what light you are using or how dark the tannin are.

Anubias is fine though. I've had a few problems with thin plants like anacharis and cabomba...But I like to let the tannin go very dark in most of my tanks. For my large planted tanks I prefer a light amount of tannin.

Thank you. I was thinking of some anubias and maybe some java fern. I have Anacharis now and it has been slowly dying over time. I suspect due to the low output of my LED lighting.
