I dont have a net ugh. Im scared of trying to scoop him up in the container he came in. he splashes around lol. and his tank is super dirty after 24 hours. So i added tap water in a glass cup and use the conditioner liquid and poured it in the water. i drained the water as much as i could but with keeping very little water and pouring the new water in. I love animals but i get super scared when things start to flap, splash. And i was told they like to jump so it scares me lol. cant i just use Crystal Geyser?

You'll probably get mixed reviewed on using bottled water. A lot of water conditioners have additives specifically for your fish (like the Tetra I use has compounds that are supposed to help keep his slime coat intact and healthy). Bottled water is definitely better than distilled, which is sterile, lacks minerals, and is generally baaaaad for your fish.

I think your method of changing the water sounds fine. :) As long as you get the old water out and new in, right? To be honest, I just use my hands to corral my betta. And he knows he's getting a bloodworm once he's in his cup. lol Some bettas are more prone to jumping than others. I think whatever you're comfortable with when it comes to changing his water is fine as long as it's effective. :)
