Things to think about when changing water

Here is something I've found that might be helpfull
Most water treating companies add more chlorine to their water in the summer to prevent algae growth so be generous with dechlorinator in the summer mounths.

Thank you! That makes a lot of sense now.

I hate to admit it... but I used to be a VERY bad Betta owner but I realize it now... When I got my first Betta, I didn't know about dechlorinator. My fish lived about 6 months, he died in the end of may, probably since they upped the chlorine and his poor little body couldn't take it...

Aww R.I.P. marble

My water supply has so much chlorine in it sometimes that I can -smell- it. Like swimming pool water. I think they also increase it in winter..

I'm allergic to chlorine, so that's some joy right there..

I double dose Prime, as if the water is turning my eyes scarlet, it can't be good for the bettas!
