Has anyone been successful using catappa leaves to lower PH? Has anyone even heard of using them? I saw them on ebay, and did some research, and they sound intriguing.

Hello Waydreamer and Welcome to Fish Lore.
I've never heard of Catappa Leaves. I have heard of Indian Almond Leaves to soften the water and help to maintain a lower pH.
Let's see what other responses you get.
Thanks - Indian Almond Leaves is I guess the other name for Catappa. They have arrived, and I think they are working - I had some peat in there too, so hard to tell which worked first.
I have also heard of people putting IA leaves in with Bettas, and that they actually build their bubble nest on them.
Let us know more about these leaves. I saw them on ebay too and I wanted to get some for my RCS cuz supposedly they like to breed on them
