Will putting an Indian Almond leaf (or any type of leaf) in a tank raise nitrate levels? I usually only put in enough to last 3 or 4 days.

It seems that when I check my nitrate levels after having a leaf in my tank the readings come out higher than they typically do without one.
Is this just a coincidence?

Thanks

A leaf? Not drastically... Maybe 5 ppm.
