Indian Almond Leaves

quick question... im on vacation in mexico right now and theres an Indian Almond tree growing infront in my suite... im sure that thats what kind of tree it is, so i gathered a bunch of nice green leaves and rinsed them really good and covered them with kleenex and pressed them in a magazine. will they be safe to bring home to my bettas?

They have to be dried. Naturally dried

From what I understand, the ones that people use in their tanks are leaves that have fallen from the tree, and, as Mo said, naturally dried.

Look for fallen ones around the base of the tree....

And sadly. I cannot get him. It's just simply too much for my budget. Anyways. I have a free import possibly coming in because linda had my other one and it apperantly dissapeared

I'm sure you can find some. I went on vacation to Cozumel to go scuba diving and there were some. However you can just order a year supply of grade C for $20...
