I think it's always a good idea to mix up what they eat anyway. IMO they get a better mix of nutrients that way.

oh yeah. Snakes are natural preditors of birdies therefore the bird is always afraid. my mom used to steal mine for her handing plants (we had birds that would nest in there). She's never had the gal to get close enough to one to test it either because I do have a real snake I take out occasionally (He'd to small to think of her as a meal).

I see that you use oak tree leaves in your spawning tank, could you please explain to me how does one go about using these leaves instead of the Indian Almond leaves. If I look at your spawning tank I see their are leaves laying on the buttom of their tank.

The leaves can be used like IAL, however they are less potent I believe then IAL, so I use more of them. I float them so the male has something to build a nest under and I also, like you saw let them sink to the bottom and release their tannins naturally however you can boil them like tea to produce it quicker.
