IAL is Indian Almond Leaf it is put in the water for the male to build a nest under and or release tannin in the water which relaxes the fish and keeps the water nice.

So DTg is Doubletail geno, so does that mean that the fish is a carrier for DT, but does not express the trait?

So is the larger dorsal the only way to tell if a fish is a dtg?

Unless you know the lineage, yes. It's not a definite way to tell either, just a clue. A lot of breeders use dt in their lines to extend the dorsal fin and make the fish more symmetrical.
