Gardening is like cooking. To improve, you need to be willing to make mistakes and experiment. Also, common names are garbage. Zone 9b, West Sac, CA.

Dried avocado leaves help with spawning. Males like to build their nests under the leaf. When I was in HS I had success with two pairs. Hundreds of babies. Once they spawn she must be removed and he’ll care for them from there on out. I would buy leaves online back then but now I grow avocado from seed and save the leaves as they fall.

@rudester1 I use #Terminalia-catappa leaves, which have been the traditional choice for Bettas. https://www.buildyouraquarium.com/indian-almond-leaves/
