Question blackwater extract

I was just reading online that Bettas actually come from blackwater. I asked around and alot people said bettafix is actually not good for bettas,messes with their breathing. Has anyone else heard this? I am going to the lfs a little later today,gonna return his old heater (found a reciept yay),get a new air valve and pump for the pandas lol. Maybe a different pump for Elvis,cause his is noisy as heck. I was gonna look at the blackwater extract they sell,is there any particular brand thats better than the rest? There seems to be one made for bettas,but im sure thats more expensive than a regular bottle of it. I also read its quite hard for halfmoons to regrow their fins,so alot use this to help. Any thoughts? Id appreciate it. Also if I go with that,should do a full change on his tank? Get the bettafix outta there. Thanks again!! Love ya guys.

I've only had experience with Bettafix, so I'm not much help. I will say that yes you should clean the tank really well after a Bettafix treatment.
Hope the helps!

Def clean the tank out...Personally I would never use Bettafix if my life depended on it...I have heard way to many bad thigs about it...I go with old fashion fixing...With 80 water, 2 gallon hospital tank, salt, and silk plants...Haha! (My Fish Hospital!!) If you want to get the water in with its natural looking betta enviroment...Go online and look up betta tea..

I think with finrot, basically just clean water should take care of it and maybe a little salt.

I personally like bettafix, and so does my fish. I haven't had any problems with it, and it is a natural oil from a tea tree. Melaleuca or something
