Interesting article, I have a beech hedge running the length of my garden, think I'll collect some leaves and try them out.

Very good article and having visited the Orinoco its right and there are very few plants growing there in the main river but a lot of leaf litter and sunken branches.
If it has fin's and swim's I'm interested in it....

Great article, I always have some almond leaves in quite a few of my tanks, now I need to find a suitable tree from England to grow in the garden shouldn't be too hard. :D
When in doubt get another tank.
I keep water the fish are just for decoration.

Beech leaves are excellent for a tank especially if it contains catfish such as whiptails, banjos and cories. However, make sure you collect them off the plant rather than off the floor as floor collected leaves CAN contain a fungus that's not too good for fish
