IAL question -

I put a piece of IAL in one of my 2 gal. bowls just this past Tuesday (3 days ago) and noticed when I was cleaning the bowl today the leaf already feels slimy. Should I remove it?

Thanks!

That's normal, you don't have to remove. The same slime that covers everything in your tank will stick to the IAL 10-fold.

OK - thanks!

Oh - one more question, please. How long can I leave it in? I have been keeping bettas and other fish for YEARS and have not been able to figure that out - LOL!!!!
