Bottled Betta Water

I saw bottles of "Betta Water" at the pet store. It's super-oxygenated.

Sounds like a marketing ploy, to me, to get people to buy stuff they don't need.

What say ye?

From what I've heard (from others on the web )
You don't need any "special" water.
Just conditioning and you should be fine.

Marketing ploy if ever I have heard one!

Tap water, conditioned is perfect for them. On top of that bettas are anabantids so by their nature can live in lower oxygen water compared to other fish.

miagrrl, you add salt to your tank?
How much salt?
How big is your tank?
Is salt a good idea to add?

I use specific betta conditioner, i don't know the difference.
