@ diruak - IAL is a leaf, that creates a natural habitat type water for bettas, and it is supposed to be a general tonic for fish in general. It is supposed to help induce spawning, help heal wounds in fish, such as fin rot and whatnot, and it does work great. All of my males made HUGE bubble nests, and my females barred up when I added them to their tanks, but I hate the look of the leaves in the tank, and it makes the water a little nasty after a few days. To me, This method is much easier, and a lot cheaper than buying it from the store for $x.xx.

@ Katana - It isn't a drink, see above, and it isn't a water cleaner, see above also :)

Can you buy IAL at PetSmart or PetCo or do you have to order it online?

You have to order it online as far as I know. Maybe they sell it in Petco, but I wouldn't know as we don't have that here. As SweetnSpicy said, it has a lot of benefits for your betta.

They sell something called Blackwater Extract in Petsmart, which is supposed to be like IAL. Of course, the real thing is better, I believe.

They do not sell IAL in any pet or fish store by me, so I ordered it from someone on ebay.

They don't even sell blackwater extract by me, I looked up and down for it until I decided to order IAL.
