Indian Almond leaves, guava leaves,mulberry leaves.

I know Indian Almond leaves are save to use with bettas. Are the other 2 safe as well?

I found a list of shrimp safe leaves and all three were mentioned. Shrimp are quite sensitive so if it Safe for them, one would think they are for Bettas.

If you can get a hold of alder leaves and alder cones, then that would help with the blackwater effect.
Currently in the process of doing the same thing.

My dad has magnolia trees and he doesn’t spray for anything. I use them for my shrimp.

I'm in Nova Scotia, Canada. It will be awhile before they are blooming here. But thanks for letting me know that they are safe.

You use the dried leaves. Mature leaves that have been dried out.
