Do Indian Almond Leaves stain anything in the tank?

My male has just finished a 5 day course for finrot. I'm gonna put in some indian almond leaf, I know it turns the water brown but will it stain any decs or anything? If so does it come off easily?

Yes, it will stain some things especially the walls of acrylic tanks....I get it off pretty easy with vinegar or diluted bleach once I empty the tank...on my glass tanks I use a razor blade on it at least weekly to keep it under control...I keep tannins in my water all the time.....

It can also stain some decorations. I have one of those sillicon anemones that was bright orange and now its brown from IAL.

That's my worry. I got them because after my boys finrot treatment I thought they'd be good to aid healing and regrowth. But I don't want them ruining everything in the tank :(

Bringing up the old thread.
Can anyone advice how do you clean the IAL stain from the decor? I understand scrabbing with some vinegar might help.. but how about silicon decorations?
