What water conditioner do i need? Bettas can live in clean spring water perfectly.

I treated the water with an anti-disease medicine for several days, but it didnt help. Eh. Just his time to go, i guess... =(

I would still use a conditioner. There are a lot of different ones but a lot of us use Aquasafe or Prime.

Eh, i can try conditioning water for future fish.. but every betta i've had has been well with spring water.
I did try conditioning for a short period, but it seemed to make them sick. So i figured i wouldn't try to fix what was not broken..
Thanks for the brand recommendations though, those could maybe help.

I haven't gone to get water conditioner yet, I will but I was wondering what exactly the advantages were? What does it actually do

My betta has regained some of his weight. Though he's still very slow and can't swim right. =/

Stress coats helps that coating of slime fish have on their body, right? But isn't that only helpful for wounds or if it's been handled a lot?

And rb500 poses a good question, what's the advantage of water conditioner if you're not using tap water anyway? To keep it extra clean?

According to bettatalk bottled water doesn't need to be treated with conditioner. I would use it to be on the safe side.Stresscoat helps to maintain their slime coat and when they are damaged by injury or disease.
