The Fizzing Tablets?

I was previously using drinking water for my Beta, but then he got ammonia poisoning so we got these tablets that fizz and dissolve and they're supposed to get rid of ammonia and nitrate and make the water live-able for the beta. I used to tablets once before but the next day after using it the water in the tank was extremely cloudy, which never happened with just bottled water.

Is it the tablets that are making it so cloudy? Should I go get a different water conditioner?

I use liquid water conditioner and I love it. It could be the tablets that made the tank cloudy.

Yeah, I'd definitely get a liquid water conditioner. It'll probably be cheaper and easier in the long run.

Thanks everyone. Right now I'm changing his water about once a day if it gets cloudy, once I run out of the tablets (there are only about 5 left) I'll get the one of the liquid conditioners.

You know, you can also remove ammonia, nitrite, and nitrates by doing regular water changes and cleaning the tank.

Really? How big is the tank, and how much do you change each time?

also, alot of ammonia removing products dont actually remove ammonia, they BIND the ammonia and its usually only effective for 24 hours..........if your changing the water every other day that should be more than enough to keep the water under control from ammonia.

another thing, the smaller the tank, even after a water change water can become cloudy within a day, that could be just YOUR water...........mine does it on my little tanks, and it will settle after a day
