Tap water

Hey to all.
I'm new to betta keeping, should I use tap water that's been dechlorinated or tap water that's been through a Pur water filter and dechlorinated?

Tap with conditioner is best. The minerals in regular tap is better for your fish than the purified water you will get from a filter.

I had this question also..but thing is my house has a central filtering system to remove hard water..the main line connects to the filter filled with potassium cloride salt then goes to other filters until it comes out of faucets and showers..will this be poisonous to them? I put natural spring water with no chemical additives I got from petco..(betta water) but need to know if this water from my filter system will be ok? Since my nearest petco is about 20 min away..so I can buy in quantity or not..thank you

My house uses a soft water system, and my 8 bettas are doing great. Tap water doesn't get effected by this system other than just making the water softer, all the chemicals are still in there and is good to use with a conditioner. This is much cheaper than having to buy "betta water" from petco.
