Yup! But it has to be an oak leaf, they are similar to Indian Almond Leaves and make sure they don't have a fungas or bad spots on them that are not their natural colors. I found this out by asking about it myself, haha
:)


Your tank looks very nice! I thought the leaf was drift wood too. lol

Should it be completely dry? Also, do oak leaves grow near boston? (Not in the city, but the towns around it? I life in front of a forest, so I was wondering if there were oak trees in there. Sorry, I don't know a thing about trees. :) Will it be beneficial to my bettas??

Oak leaves are sort of like IAL because they release tannins. They should be collected from the ground and, yes, be completely dried (naturally) and brown. If you want more info you could PM Oldfishlady because she's the expert lol.

Thanks so much everyone! And as other people answered, Oak leaves just from the ground outside are fine. :) I'm lucky my parents have several oaks in their back yard. It being Fall, there are plenty of leaves for me to gather! ;)

Still haven't been able to get his Terra Cotta pot, but hopefully later this week. :)

The grassy looking ones are "Dwarf Sagittaria" and the taller leafy ones are "Bacopa".

And if you noticed the odd one in the left corner, it's something right from the river. I rinsed it many times and let it sit in another tank for over a week before using it. It's just water weed of some sort. But, it's neat looking and, pardon the pun, growing like a weed. ;)
