Can you overdose IAL?

So, I am just curious, is it possible for a fish to OD on ial? I put a leaf in and the water is darker then normal. How dark is too dark? What would adverse effects, if any be?

One of my friend experimentally left IAL inside one of his betta's tank until the water was sooo dark ( couldn't see the fish at all ), then when he finally changed the water ( he didn't change it for about a month and I was there when he did ), the betta was okay, and I thought it's color was darker or something but couldn't make sure of this since it was a fighter betta.

Sharp drop in pH comes to mind.

One way to keep the ial concentration consistent is to keep a couple leaves in a gallon jug of water and add the tea after a water change. That way you dont have to wait for tannins to leach and ph a ial remain fairly consistent levels.
