Question Scent Diffuser Safe Around Betta?

What I'm referring to are the little jars of scented oil with wooden reeds sticking through a hole in the top. They gradually release a subtle scent into the room. I really like these, but does anyone know if it's safe to have one in the same room as my betta's five gallon? It seems like it should be okay, but I want to be sure.

Keep in mind that bettas breathe air from the surface, so it's not a good idea to have a lot of fumes going on near the tank. If the scent is subtle, the room is a decent size, you can keep the door open for most of the day, and the diffuser is as far from the tank as possible, it should be ok.

I use/burn incense, oil burner things with oil and little candles, the reed diffusers, my husband smokes cigars and I have never had any adverse affect on any of my fish or tanks and mine are all open tops too...I do have a pretty big house and keep a fan blowing all the time, but I burn the incense on my fish table less than 4ft away from my tanks........just sayin......

Personally I don't think a reed diffuser would cause any problems-short or long term.....

I'm glad to see this thread because I have a reed diffuser near my fish tank, I would say it is a moderately strong scent. should I move it?

Thanks for the replies! It is a big room, and I keep all the inside doors open all the time, so it sounds like it will be fine.
