IAL and Ghost Shrimp

Hey guys I am curious to know if ghost shrimp are affected by IAL? Anyone know? I have ghost shrimp but am holding off on buying the IAL.
Thanks!

First off what is IAL? (Im kind of new at having a community tank and well this website too lol). But I also have ghost shrimp and they appear to be very healthy in a tank with mollies, guppies, glo fish, dwarf frogs, and female bettas.

Indian Almond Leaves. They are leaves from a bettas natural habitat. There are many claims to what benefits they bring to the fish like anti bacterial qualities, lowering ph (depending on your water), making the bettas home similar to the wild by making releasing tannins into the water causing the water to darken, and breeders use them to strengthen and condition their fish. Im sure there are many more that I cant think of atm. And I was told that they should NOT affect the ghost shrimp.

oh ok ya i know about indian almond leaves i just never saw it in an acronym lol. i know that ghost shrimp actually eat IAL. a t least once it starts to disintegrate. so no it doesnt affect the ghost shrimp in any negative way.
