  • IAL quantity per gallon

    How many IAL Grade A (Indian Almond Leaves) do you put per gallon?

    Re: IAL quantity per gallon

    I found the answer:

    2 Leaves for every 13 gallon.

    For my dwarf cory tank, I will be putting 1 IAL and using 1 IAL soaking in a 3 gallon bucket 3 days prior to a WC so I can maintain a steady pH value.

          I know, I think you put 5 IAL in a 5.5 g tank? Did you ever test the pH in that tank? what was it?

              What was the pH before you put the leaves?

                      Here is a picture of the IAL, pretty huge. I wasn't expecting that big, but at least I know what is Grade A IAL.

                      I haven't put one in the tank yet, I am waiting for WC and will only be using 1 IAL in my 10g Dwarf Cory tank.

                          It's okay sized lol. They get much bigger. I had almond trees growing in my yard in India. Nice looking shape though. I don't see tears. Can't tell if there are clear spots or not.

                            No clear spots or tears.

                            Here is another question. Can I use any regular Almond leaf or does it have to be Indian? I pass by an Almond Tree farm from time to time and was wondering if I can just ask the owner if I could have some of his leaves when they fall down.
