on the stove! just kidding. get a large pot/container and fill it with 90F tap water. Place bottle in pot/ container...ur water will be ready to use soon.

is there anything wrong with your source water that u are having to resort to using bottled?

I would recommend you to switch over slowly then :) tap water contains many nutrients that are good for the fish. plus bottled water is oind of expensive...

I usually have my water ready in jugs, so i would pour a small amount into a pot and heat it on the stove, then add the warm water to the cold until I reach the desired temperature.

Just don't add it directly to the tank!
