Oak leave ?

Ok first i'll start by saying, I'm sorry! Im sure this has been posted but, i cant find it

My guy was on Kanaplex for 3 days for bad tail melt/rot. It doesn't seem to be getting worse but it's not getting better. been keeping that water SUPER CLEAN!

Well i found a park here that has oak trees and i was going to get some leaves.

How do i use these? He's has a 10G but, right now he's in a QT tank, for his tail (and i'm having an ammonia issue with his 10G, but thats a whole other thread)

My question is how do i use these leaves to help with his tail and overall feeling better. Thanks!

Again sorry, I'm sure this is a repost.

I highly suggest not using leaves from random places. You have no way of known what kind of pesticides, and other chemicals, not to mention diseases may have been sprayed on them. IMHO the risks FAR outweigh the benefits. There's nothing oak leaves will cure that strong antibiotics won't.

Kanaplex should be treated for a full week, dosing every other day.
