    So I cant find a good answer on how long IAL last in water. ( Dont known if its the right thread) I heard some people say you have to take it out in 1-2weeks or some say you can leave it in until its gone. What do you guys do?

    They will last depending on your water temperature, hardness, and the pH.
    I leave mine in the tank forever, until they have disintegrated. There isn't a harm in doing that.

    Oh ok, I do weekly water changes so it will be fine then i guess. My mom dosent under stand the brown color from the tannins. I put two whole big leafs in my rescue bettas tank for finrot with new water and somehow it stopped and grew back.

    Yes, the leaves have great medicinal powers.
    I recommend them over medications.
