You can if you want to, but it's not required to do a water change before adding your almond leaves/almond leaf extract!Hi Peachsonas,
Thank you for sharing your article with me-explaining how to get a better concentration of almond leaves extraction. I will give it a try!
Do i need to do a water change before i add this?
Hi Peachsonas,Hi there! You're already doing a good thing by staying on top of the water changes. Clean water is usually the perfect remedy for fin rot and the rot on your betta doesn't look too severe. You can add almond leaves, I'd recommend that over Stress Coat. You could even make an extract from the almond leaves for more concentrated tannins in your water. Here's a recipe that I used when I was dealing with fin rot with my betta

I would say other than that just keep up on the water changes and making sure you test the water so that the ammonia levels and nitrite levels are never harmful.
Good morning!Hi Peachsonas,
I'm planning to boil some leaves tomorrow, could you tell me how long the solution lasts in the fridge? Thanks x

Thanks for getting back to me.
My calculation is as follows: 6 leaves/ 50 in packet x 6 gallons= approx 1ml???
(these are the small leaves)
