    this sounds like a good idea but I'm not sure if the water would get too dark

    Don't worry, gammerus, it won't pollute the water.

    I wouldn't add that if i were you -- my betta gets along fine without any chemicals at all - plus that stuff says right on the description that it colors the water. Also it says on the description that it lowers your pH. Any pH adjusters are possibly harmful to your fish. It's better to have a constant pH, then one that is constantly fluctuating.

    Just my 2 cents!

    Yeah, I say the less stuff in the water the better, unless you are adding salt for certain fish.

    Excellent advice! I have never seen this product before, and it may be fine to use, but I don't like playing with ph changes with chemicals either, and many a betta has lived a long life with just being fed properly and good water quality. There are many products out there that are not necessary and only cost you money. ;)
