I added 4 API root tabs to my 5,5 gallon under 4 or 5 crypt wendetti ,and now my water seems to be cloudy so i assume it is the tabs.Will this harm my little buddy ,do i need to do a water change or can i wait for when i normally do my water change.

I just removed 50 % i am going to get some new water up to temp and add conditioner,do i need to do the water changes back to back or can i do the other 50 tomorrow, and thanks i would have never of known that the nitrates were high, i am new to plants.
Wow this is bad i just tried to remove one the tabs and it just disintegrated ,i am doing another water change now,I have just 1 betta in the 5.5 and i just replaced my lighting yesterday to a zoo med ultra sun 6500k.
do u have a siphon? siphon the tabs out... dont use your hands :P
oh and remove your betta to a separate container and just do a very thorough gravel vacum. test the nitrates again, and if it's ok. go ahead and fill and put the betta back in.
I had a friend who dosed too much ferts and his nitrates was above 100 for the longest time. His betta couldn't take it any more and jumped T__T apparently it was 4 years old when it suicided
