Moneywort TOXIC????
 
I heard from others here that moneywort can cause bloating in bettas. DOes that go for other fish for say... platys?

I have never heard of such a claim, bettas or other fish.

I heard that it rekeases a toxin into the water that can cause problems in bettas; bloating. Currenlty, im having trouble getting my betta to get unbloated and its been about 2 months now

I have never heard of this and have known many betta keepers who keep moneywort with them. Some even use it in breeding tanks because if how durable it is.

I had a post on something like this on a different topic and some replied telling me about the moneywort. I forgot their online names but I'll see if I can find it
