green tea

what is the per gallon mix? or is it just splash some in?
i brewed 2liters of long leaf green tea for 10 hours and would like to add it to some tanks. How much should i add?

You can probably add a cup at least. Is it decaf? And you can also toss the teabag/tea strainer directly into the tank for a couple of hours or overnight.

Not sure, never tried it. But I guess if you see your betta bouncing off the walls, it's probably not so good.

The good news is green tea has relatively little caffeine compared to, say, black tea. Black tea has just a little less than coffee. Green tea has less than 50 milligrams per 6 oz. Plus the longer leaf means less caffeine.

True, but just to be safe i think i will wait, ask and maybe go to the store and buy some decaf.

Probably a good idea. But now you have some good tea to drink.

Yup, not enough caffeine in the tea for him.
