hello and welcome.
i would advise you you buy a de-chlorinater for the water,
you should be able to bye it from any fish store. :)

I agree with Willow. Tap water is just fine. Get hold of a dechlorinator/water conditioner to add to the tap water and your betta will be fine. :)

I concur with all the other posts.

What kind of set up do you have for your Betta?

i agree with the other but my betta has been living on tap water 4 a pretty long time so guess its fine. u can also use bottled water if u like but make sure its not too cold or too warm bcuz the fish will die or get sick!

Use tap water, but make sure to use a conditioner to take out any chlorine or chloramine, heavy metals, and dissolved organics. I use NovAqua+ and AmQuel+, but a lot of people swear by Prime. Also, make sure you match the temperature of the change water to the tank water. I give my guys a 50% water change every 2 to 3 weeks.

I think leaving tap water alone for 24 hours will do as well. I don't use it but if a de-chlorinator is not available I suppose you could use that.
