Question Well Water?

Hello all.
My family and I are getting ready to move out to a 18 acre farm where we can take care of our 2 precious horses, Gem and OT. I am the owner of an AMAZING blue and red betta, Gibs. He is a blessing in my life and my baby. I'm excited to be moving out to this farm, but there is one problem. We're going to be using well water and I don't know how Gibs will respond to that. Does anyone have any idea how bettas do in well water? Will I have to add aditional processes to my water treatment? PLEASE HELP!!! :D

I would still add water conditioner to remove any heavy metals that may be in the well water. Good luck with the move.

Well water should be fine, unless there is a toxic waste dump or nuclear reactor nearby. Continue using water conditioner and take a few gallons of your current tap water with you so you can do a slow transition on to the well water.
