Re: Almond leaf in your aquarium

Yes I have seen this method used, almond leaf also supposedly eliminates
NH4, during new tank set up. People displaying Bettas and other fish in
small aquariums use this method. I haven't tried it as I have no access to
almond leaves. I found this in a lot of display containers at Aquarama 2001
in Singapore though all the guys there refused to identify the leaf and tell
the purpose they use it for.
