If I put oak leaves in my 10 gallon to release tannins, would the brown color stain my white sand? Last time I was treating puffy with fin biting by using oak leaves, he got really lethargic and scared me so I stopped and he became active again. Do most bettas act like that when you use oak leaves?

Did he get better after using the oak leaves, even though he got all lethargic while using them?

Well of course, his fins improved greatly oak leaves, IAL, etc make tannins which help with fin growth and scale development, but he was REALLY lethargic, so much it was sort of scary, and I'm not sure if that's supposed to happen.

How constant should the water temperature be for bettas? Is it alright for their to be a slight change in degree?
Because my bettas tank stays at 82 during the day and 79 at night. I try my best to keep it as close as possible, but the way the house is kept, it's not possible for it to stay at 82 at all times. I have a heater on all the time if your wondering, it keeps the temp warm like I said. It's just not adjustable.
Just wanted to know if it's dangerous that way, and if so i'll figure out a way to fix that.

I think that change would be acceptable as long as it is happening naturally over time. A fish should be equipped to deal with swimming from warmer to colder water and vice versa.. its sudden temperature changes that are most dangerous.

I would change the water at least once a week just so the HW can get some oxygen from the water. Aeration could also help but isn't necessary.
