Is This a Betta Friendly Substrate?

I was wondering if anyone has used the "CaribSea® FloraMax™ Planted Aquarium Substrate" for bettas before, and what you have to say on it?

It has added elements that promote plant growth and apparently help to turn fish wastes into plant-food, so to speak, and it's pretty cheap for a 12 gallon bag, but do you guys think it's safe to use for bettas?

It has added iron, magnesium, calcium, potassium and other elements but does not increase the pH levels.

Thanks,
Arik

Thank you! I'd like to use something other than gravel, so this looked like a good alternative.

Any info on how snails or shrimp do on it? I plan on adding an apple/mystery snail or two to the tank before I purchase a new betta.
