So is it suggested that I remove the eggs/all other cats to stop them from cannibalizing the fry?

I really like leaf litter. It's in all my CRS tanks and I believe the microorganisms "aufwechs" (I think) that reside afte a couple of weeks are a wonderful source of nutrition for all inverts and cat fry. There has to be something good on there they like otherwise why would they constantly be grouped on it picking the crap out of it.
It sounds like you are using oak leaves.
Do you know which type?
I have a few pin oaks in my yard but since my lawn is maintained (weed control/fertilization) with chemicals I'm just not willing to take the chance of introducing anything harmful to the tanks by using my oak leaves. From what I have read oak leaves are pretty good but they don't hold up as well as IAL and also release less/less pontent tannins too.

I need to reorder some of those as I am moving heavily into keeping wild bettas. Do you have a US supplier for them as I can only find them is SE Asia? I'm also looking for a US supplier of Shirakura micro organism powder and mineral rock for CRS. If you could turn me on to a US supplier of any or all of those, I'd greatly appreciate it. Rather than distill this thread, please PM me if you can help. Thanks. Cheers. - Frank
