HOW TO USE DRY INDIAN ALMOND LEAVES

Published by Clement Chee

 
There are many uses when it comes to using dry Indian almond leaves.
 

Inducing Spawning

If you want to breed some fries out of your Betta couple, ketapang are a great tool for inducing spawning. Just like human beings, they work as ‘candle lights’ and ‘romantic music’ just to get them into the mood.
 

Lowering pH and Ammonia

If pH and ammonia are too high in the water, it will do damage to the fish in the long run. These leaves are great for this purpose.

Building Bubble Nest

Male Bettas need a safer place to store their eggs and dry Indian almond leaves are fit for the job.
 

Curing Diseases

Even though this is not a one fix for all, it will definitely help in curing diseases carried by the fish.
 

Killing Parasites and Bacteria

They are the agents of bringing the parasites and bacteria down.
 

Water Softener

They will soften the substance of the water.
 

Black Water Extract Effects

Some fish and reptiles need the black water extract. The leaves will just serve the purpose.
 

Curing Torn Fins and Tails

This may not always be the case. However, it still contributes to the job, somehow.
 

Instructions

There is really no specific way of using ketapang leaves for your fish. Basically, you just need to keep any of the leaves in the water and you will see the water turns yellowish. When this happens, it means the properties of the leaf have already been released and they are already working in the tank.
 

How much should you use then?

For my standard, I use about the size of a coin for a tank that contains half a gallon of water. If I discover my fish is not feeling well and its fins are torn, then I will crumble a larger portion of the leaf with my hand and dump it in the tank. That way, the properties will release much faster than usual. If you have a large tank, you can place one whole piece of leaf together with the fish, be it Betta, tetras or even arowana.
 
Let’s say you want to breed Bettas, you will also need to place a whole piece of leaf on the surface of the water and let it float so that the male Betta can make bubble nest when he is ready.
 
Be careful, though. Many experienced breeders believe that these dry leaves cannot be kept in the tank for more than a week because they will start to rot and release bad properties that will not do any good to the fish. I personally keep this practice, even though I do not have any scientific proofs on the matter.
 

Other Uses

Dry Indian almond leaves are also used among the tetras, reptiles, arowana and turtle keeping community.
