Atisons Betta Spa and Hikari Betta Revive.

My halfmoon had a horrible tail biting issue in his last tank. Since I moved him into a new 5 gallon tank he seems a lot happier and his tail has started growing back. It seems like a really slow process. I have read reviews on both Atisons Betta Spa and Hikari Betta Revive saying that these products may speed up the healing process. Has anyone had any experience with these products? What were the outcomes of the treatment? I have heard that the betta spa may stain tanks. Also are these products safe for use with live plants?

I think revive has tea tree oil which can harm the Betta's labyrinth organ. I use Stress Coat or AQ salt for this. The AQ never really helped much.Stress Coat

Ingredients for betta revive: Water, neomycin sulfate (<10%), methylene blue (<0.5%), proprietary polymer mixture, buffers, EDTA, malachite green chloride (<0.01%), cyanocobalamin and electrolytes.

No tea tree. There are mixed reviews about whether it is actually helpful.

I believe the betta spa is little more than stress coat and IAL extract.

Betta Spa has nothing on the actual IAL extract. If you can get some IAL leaves it's worth it.

I use Stress Coat as my main water conditioner and I use IAL so I experience rapid healing from injured fish (like females that have been removed from a spawning tank or jarred males).

I use Betta Spa when I can't get IAL leaves, but MrV is right. IAL is the best for healing bettas.
