Thumbs up Source for Indian Almond Leaf (IAL)

I just received some IAL I ordered from Thailand. After doing a Google search I ran across this place on the second or third page:

http://www.bettawan.com/index.html

I ordered 50 sun-dried Terminalia catappa leaves for $11.50; they arrived two weeks after I placed my order online (very convenient, use PayPal, shipping incl. in price of leaves). They have other leaves and teabags, too.

I thought I would share my good fortune and a good lead.

That's awesome! I get mine from Malaysia from an ebay seller but they take a long time to get here! They're also cheaper so I'll stick with my seller :) IAL are so incredible though, I'm glad you got some!

Thank you, Laki! I think IAL mean so much to our bettas, a reminder of a long-distant home (and a fine water conditioner).

I just got a new shipment of IAL today myself. All 7 of the bettas are enjoying their fresh leaves.

I get mine off ebay from Amy, who is either in malaysia or singapore. I usually get the C grade leaves which are cheaper but are not perfect leaves. sometimes they have free shipping

OH maybe that's why mine are cheaper. I get the low grade ones too. They're just holier and more uneven in appearance but I crack them up anyway. I love the tanned water!

I get mine from Amy Lim on eBay also, I'm pretty sure she's from Singapure.:)
She has great prices and the leaves are AMAZING quality too! I get the C+ ones and they are awesome, arrived very well packaged as well.:) Here's a link if you were wondering ↓
http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Amys-50g-C...item3a6828d208
Can't recommend her enough!

Btw: Forgot to say, she included a few tea bags for free just so I can try which method I prefer and the free shipping on the C+ ones is still running.:)

Reading this thread reminds me that Amy gave me (free) two big IA Seeds. I should have started them early.... now I will find them. (Amy is awesome)

I get mine from Amy also. It took about a week and half to get them. I got C+ for $7.00. My fish seem to like them and I think my betta Fiero that I bought with minor fin rot began grow out his fins as a result of using them.

Thanks for sharing about the IAL from Amy I am almost out and think I will order some from Amy since you all have such nice things to say about her and the leaves.
