Indiand Almond Leaf. :) It is a leaf that releases lovely tannins into the water that harden scales, make bubblenests more sticky and generally seem to make bettas healthier. They are especially nice for bettas that have been sick or are in the process of recovering. :)

Thanks for the IAL info- where does one get this? First I've heard of it- thanks for the info! Is it harmful to plants at all?

Nope. It can be a problem with high-light plants as the tannins colour the water and make it harder for light to penetrate. The leaves also float (at first), so the light can't get to plants underneath them. I have them in both of my low-light planted tanks with no problems for my plants, though. :)

You can get them on AquaBid and sometimes Amazon and Ebay. I get mine through my local aquarium club. :)
