The local fish store does not have IAL, but did have and recommend "Atison's Betta Spa" made by Ocean Nutrition. When I got home and could use a magnifying gass to read the back of the bottle, it says do not add sat to the water. Altho the store-man called it almond leaf extract, that's not all it is. In addition to the wild almond leaves extract (Terminallia Catappa), it also contains Sodium Chloride,Calcium Chloride, and Yucca extract. Since I don't want to over salt him, I can't use it till tomorrow, when water without salt has sat out long enough. Or should I try to get the decaf green tea, steep it (how much/long) and start treating him tonight? Since this morning, he has been in epsom (and conditioner) water in a plastic wrapped quart container.
But beyond that, since I can't follow your directions precisely, I don't know what's the best way to proceed~
