IAL gives off beneficial properties when set in the water. The properties boost the fish's immune response and makes his tissue a little more sturdy. They will also taint the water light to dark brown based on how many leaves you put in. It's usually 1 leaf per gallon, I recall.

The grades the leaves are grouped in are just their appearance, A leaves are full; with no holes. C leaves tend to have some rips and holes. But nonetheless, they do the same job.

Since he's biting, I only suggest you do clean water. Because if you try to treat him, he'll just keep on biting..

I thought that would keep him calm since he's kind of hyper

It's 1"-1.5" per g. I use C+ grade. They are still solid leaves. There are some people on here who prefer the tea bags. I was debating trying those in the future.

I have combined IAL and Stress Coat for my biters with a lot of success. Even my worst biters have recovered well.
