D: oh noes! Well, just my opinion; my fish swims around in it when I drop some in the tank. He acts similar when I put bloodworms in the tank, like it's a treat. I've been using the bettafix since I got him, and he hasn't gotten sick or anything.

I don't think all bettas will have the same reaction to it. I used it on one of mine several years ago and had good luck with it.

Well all it really says is this

KENT MARINE BLACK WATER EXPERT contains natural humic and tannic acids that simulate water conditions found in the Amazon region of South America, Southeast Asia and Western Africa. Excellent for Discus, Tetras, Angelfish, Barbs, Gouramis and all other soft water fish. Encourages spawning and aids in the hatching process.

but other people said it aids in healing as well.

How much was it? Another way you can get tannic acid in your tank is to put a piece of driftwood in it. I was told to boil mine beforeputting it in my tank and its a good thing I did because it turned the pots water a deep brown tea color.
