It will not harm anything, and should dissipate in a few hours. However, it would be okay to go ahead and do a small change of water, putting in some new water to dilute it a bit.

No, it will be fine! The Betta kit includes a dechlorinator, and it won't harm the plant roots. Have fun!

Question

Can I leave our Betta in the tank with the fizz tablet?

I need to add water to our Betta's tank and I would like to add a tablet to get his water in balance. Is it safe to do this with him still in the water or should I remove him, fill it up, and then put in the fizz tablet?

It is best to mix his water up outside the tank, with him in the tank, and once it has stopped fizzing, put the new water in the tank.

I have no idea what "valve" is, but bettas tend to not be kept in proper environments, which seriously stresses them over time, so my first recommendation would be to improve his home. He should be in 2-5 gallons of water, if he is not, and his water should be a toasty temperature of 80 degrees, if it is not. If he is in a very small container, the way most people keep bettas, place his old water, and enough new water in his new environment to just give him room to swim and gradually finish filling the new tank over a period of an hour, so you don't shock him.

If he is already in a nice big tank with warm water, then do a partial water change of 25-33%. When preparing his new water, dose with Aquasafe and aquarium salt. Use 1 teaspoon of aquarium salt per 2.5 gallons of water.

You should add the salt to his new tank, as well, if he does indeed need a bigger home.

In both situations, he needs to be treated but I'm not sure with what since I am not sure what he has so I would recommend Lifeguard which treats all external illnesses other than viruses. However, to use a medication, you need to have either a filter or a small airstone.

This is a bit much to cover in this type of forum, so if you have questions, please call our support staff at 1-800-526-0650.

As far as the water conditioner is concerned, yes. It does its job and breaks down after 2-3 minutes.

As far as drinking fish water, not necessarily. Cats and dogs can pick up bugs like protozoa that cause diarrhea and vomiting. Best to try to keep your pet away from the fish bowl, if possible.

So if I understand correctly, it is just sitting there, not fizzing, and blue? I would remove it, and use a different tablet, although at this point, your chlorine would have dissipated anyway, but you would definitely want to remove the chloramines.
