Question Nutrafin Betta Plus Question!

I got some free bettaplus when I bought my quarantine tanks, but it seems like the stuff makes the water cloudy. I kinda liked it cuz it has IAL, but...has anyone else had this problem? I'm thinking about throwing it away! If I use something like Stress Coat instead the water stays clear until I change it again (every 24hrs in the QT tank). Using the bettaplus, it's cloudy within 8 hours! I actually have well water, so no need to dechlorinate, but I like to use something to help their slime coats. I really was only using the bettaplus because it was free, but does anyone else have any comments on this topic? I know everyone uses Prime, but like I said, I don't need a dechlorinator (I prefer API Stress Coat anyway). Got any reasons WHY you use what you use? Please let me know :)

BTW I have a 55, a 20, a 10, a 3, and some QT tanks up right now, so the bettaplus really comes in too small a bottle for me anyways, but when I get a new fish, I QT it for a while to be sure it's healthy before adding it to a tank...hence the need for some slime coat additive/stress relief. Sorry for rambling so much! <3

I'm currently using API Stress Coat for Harley's fin rot. It also removes chlorine. Its been helpful in healing him so far.

It may be the IAL in it that is causing the water to appear a little cloudy...Everytime I add a IAL leaf to my critter carrier it gets a little cloudy.

Thanks for your replies! I am setting up a new 10 gallon and I dumped 2 bottles of it in (actually that still wasn't enough...takes 20 capfuls or something like that LOL) and the water isn't cloudy yet (no fish in there either yet), so it must have been some other variable...maybe I used too much in the little QT tanks (although it says use one capful...)
