That's actually why I have it. [:
I'm glad you and another user were able to help another with questions regarding green tea. It's actually a great alternative if you're in a bind like myself. My Betta isn't super stressed or anything, but I believe it to be a good idea to steep it in there until the water mimics the natural habitat. He's not breathing heavily or tail biting or anything of the sort-thank goodness.

He just seems frazzled to me and I want him to be comfortable.

You'd put anyone to sleep Sakura. Remember? I wanna try tea in my tank, but how would I remove it? I have a cycled 10g

Water changes get it out, also the carbon will eventually filter it out. You are getting sleepy . . . okay, not starting that again.

That's hilarious. Like a day at the spa for him.

Fleetwood - My mom used to give me Sleepytime tea when I was a kid and I didn't feel well. Always worked. I hope your guy perks up, poor thing. I wonder why he's so frazzled?

i think i'll just remove the tea 25% at at time and add less next time to start the cycle again. dont think it'll be 24/7 but until the fins improve.

i havent caught him biting yet, though i never did buy stress coat. just how does a fish go about healing the tail? would spines stick out and slowly fill in from the gaps?
