Tropical Extracts Good?

I just bought a bottle of NUTRAFIN Tropical Extracts

I am planning to use it on my 29g planted tank which will be hosting 10 tetras and 1 gourami also 3 otos. Has anybody used this product? I am a little worried about using it because I don't want anything to happen to my plants which seem to be doing very well right now. Also I am a little unsure of how to add this to the water, I was thinking to add it slowly 5mL per 10 gallons when I do partial water changes AFTER adding the tetras and gouramis into the tank.

My water pH is also pretty high 8.2 I am not sure if this lowers the pH or not but if it does I should really be careful adding this to the water because to my understanding pH changes can hurt fish.

As far as I know, it does not lower the pH, but if your worried about it, test the pH of your water, then gill a jug with tap water, add the conditioner, wait about 5 min, then check the pH of the jug. should be fine. I always add my conditioner to the jug of water rather than to the tank.
