Vitamin supplements and bettas?

Hey I was wondering if anyone here uses aquarium vitamin supplements.

My guy is thriving (He lives in a community tank) , but I'm constantly reading up on various things to improve his health and life.

So I'm wondering about things like Vitachem. Do any of you use it or something like it with your bettas?

I don't use it. Don't see a need to. It's like telling people they have to drink 8 glasses of water a day... The proper term is to have equal of 8 glasses of water intake... (Fruits, veggies, chalk full of water). If the Betta is fed right, and proper husbandry is in order, then he won't "need" supplements.

I don't use it either. In a well-maintained tank, a fish should have all they need. :)

I love this stuff. It's really amazing.. grows fins like nothing else and when nothing else would. It's great for their immune system and keeping their healthy. Even works in tandem with other things to heal infections naturally. Totally worth it if you can afford it. Don't know that Sena has any actual experience.

I don't, because I don't dose my fish with anything unless absolutely necessary. Mine are also fed live, frozen, and NLS pellets.

Mine are fed NLS and Atison's Pro. I used it in treating a nasty internal infection of a previous fish as suggested by another general fish forum and that's when I realized how good it was. I don't like using chemicals either but it's vitamins.. It's not harmful chemicals. If you do a google search you'll see that everyone who has ever used it is full onboard and had great success. I don't know.. agree to disagree.
