Maple leaves for betta?
I have heard mention of adding maple leaves to acidify water. I went out and collected some fallen ones from they yard and popped them into some dechlorinated tap water. They've been outside for a few months, buried under snow for a few weeks, and constantly wet here in MD.
Can I add them to the betta tank? His fins are tattered (a rescue) and i have heard that acidic water helps with restoration. Right now the tank is sitting at 7.6ph according to my test kit.
And I know all about gh and kh, mineral content, ect. I just want the tannins to make my boy happy and I'm too cheap to buy IAL.
