water change

If Im cycling the new tank with my fish when do I do his 1st water change ? If I do a partial change before its cycled will that mess up the process?

It's better to just use tap water with conditioner :) Bottled water gets expensive after a while, and there's nothing wrong with using tap

There are minerals in tapwater that your fish won't get in bottled water.
