slight emergency

I don't have a water tester.
I'm going back to college in a few hours.
I have a filter that needs to be in water.

I don't know if the water is that safe. All I know is that within biddhas first 5 months, he lived in the water with NO conditioner and he actually got a lot more healthy than when I got him. He developed no problems so I assume its good. What should I definitely watch out for?

I'm sorry, i was half asleep and wrote this.xD

I'm returning to college and the water there is different than at home. I don't have a water tester to see the parameters.

Buddha lived perfectly for 5 months without a conditioner. Is it safe to assume the water is good?

I wouldnt worry too much about the parameters until you can get/if you can get something to test parameters.. I would defenitely use conditioner though. If you get prime it will take care of ammonia, nitrite & nitrate so you shouldnt need to test it...

While the water might be OK for the fish to live in, it also might be harming him slowly. You have no idea one way or another because you can't test your water. It's safest to always use conditioner, because you never know what's in the water, and sometimes chemicals kill slowly.
