I have oak leaves in two of my aquaria at present. From your initial post, I think you read the same article I did in December's TFH
Leaves have long been used by many aquarists. Almond leaves are popular, but oak leaves are also good. I have an oak tree in my back yard, and I know nothing gets sprayed on it, so I dry the leaves by laying them out and then put them in an open bag for use as needed.
I started this for my Farlowella fry that I have been having real trouble feeding as they will only graze fresh soft algae. Still don't know how much difference this is making, but they do graze on the oak leaves.
