So I was reading somewhere that you could add in some types of tea bags for tannins in the water and it will have similar effects to IAL. My IAL won’t be in for another while and 6 bettas just came to me (I rescue fish in my area). They were a “sorority” but after looking at them for. Idk. 10 seconds I realized at least 2 of them are males. They’re all beat up understandably and some have minor fin rot at this point. I have them all in separate 5 gallon bins (I am paranoid now that 2 others may also be male and have developed false egg spots but we will have to see as time goes on) and I am giving them each a salt bath each day as well as cleaning their bins. Using a space heater to keep the room warmed up since I don’t have 6 spare heaters and at night hot water bottles and Saran Wrap to keep the heat in. It is a mess lol. But anyways I don’t have IAL on me atm and read you can use some teas. The only tea I have is orange pekoe. Does anyone know if that would work? I heard to brew it for a while then dump that out and that will remove any caffeine and what will be left over is the good stuff we want. Is that true? I don’t want to do anything that will hurt these poor souls anymore than they already are. Thanks in advance.
