About conditioners

I used to put Prime conditioner.yesterday i bought the betta basics from seachem,make a 100% change water,put water aged after 12-16 hours and put 3 capfull at my 3 gallons tank.After a couple of hours i noticed something like a rainbow slime at the surface.Is this ok for my betta?Should i use it again to betta or my rest 4 bettas,or throw it away?My betta seemed ok with that.I dont use filters and i dont have a heater now at summer because the temp is ok.

Actually I found my water the same with seachem's stuff... It did not seem to have a bad effect on the fish, it was just annoying though. Also because it is still water, you'll get slime at the surface anyways... I just use a cup to scoop out the discoloration/slime.

also try a piece of paper towel placed on the water's surface for a few seconds, then remove. The slime will come up with the towel.

That's a valid point. Actually what it could do rather than "bacteria" being an issue, is dust from the towel, and fluffies. That and as mentioned before t could still allow particles to seep through as it is more of a weave than a border/blockade.

Ial isn't a specific medication bit it is a great overall health booster and has some antibacterial properties. It should help with fin rot.

Banana leaves work similarly, I believe.
