Aquarists use Almond Leaves to mimic the natural habitat of bettas, but many other
freshwater species benefit from them as well. Discus, gouramis, killiefish, tetras,
arrowanas, angelfish, South American dwarf cichlids, corys, plecos, and rasboras are
a few freshwater species that do well with almond leaves added to their
Although there is no scientific data available to measure the specific benefits of
almond leaves, many aquarists believe they improve health, stimulate the natural
environment of fish native to soft, acidic waters by naturally reducing pH, increase
fertility, and reduce the incidence of bacterial infections.
Almond leaves naturally release tannins into the water which will color aquarium
water similar to fishs' natural habitats.
How to use: Use 2 leaves per 20 gallons of water. Rinse leaves well with tap water
before adding to the aquarium. Observe the results, and add more or fewer leaves
