is tap water fine for my betta?

i've always been using filtered water in those 5 gal pitchers sold by sparkles and such. But I drain my family water supply so quick therefore i need an alternative. Can i use tap water from the faucet + Betta Water Conditioner?? Or its bad for my betta? Thanks

Yes, you can use tapwater as long as you use water conditioner in it to make it safe for the fish.

I use water conditioner and it's great. It helps keep your fish safe from the things in your tap water. I was using filtered water for a while too. I saw the water conditioner at the pet store and it's been my savior.

Yeah just make sure you're using water conditioner. I would sprinkle some aquarium salt in there too.

thank you all.
I just changed the water in the tank with the conditioner and now my betta fish has been swimming non stop. Is this normal? I think he's probly excited since the water yesterday was VERY cloudy due to the fresh plant died cuz of no sun light. Is this normal?

that could be normal, but bettas also swim really fast if the water is too warm, so make sure you're careful of the temperature when you change his water.
