Bubbles in tank?

So today I did a water change and for the first time ever, I used tap water treated with conditioner instead of pure spring water. I wanted to buy prime but Petco didn't have it so I ended up with bettasafe. Anyways, since I put him back in his tank, I noticed that there are lots of bubbles on the sides of the tank, the little statue, and his plant. There are also like two or three on him. He doesn't seem sick, he's swimming around and being active. So is this something to be concerned about?

No - they are just air bubbles from the tap water. They will dissipate before too long.

If you use the sprayer on your sink to fill up your bucket of new water, that will help gas it out faster.

Thanks! I was worried because two years ago, before I knew anything about bettas, I used dasani water for my fish and he died within an hour with tons of bubbles around him. I just didn't want to repeat such a terrible mistake again :(

Thanks for the info, though!

When I was in college I used to use Dasani water with dechlorinator for my bettas and never had a problem...
