I will try to get pictures up later, but my fish definitely has popeye.
I'm about to do a 100% water change, and this is where I have questions.
I usually use bottled distilled water when I do water changes because I've heard that the tap water at my college is pretty gross and works poorly in fish tanks. However, I would assume that people who say this don't treat the water beforehand. Either way, I'm still hesitant to switch to tap water since I've never used it in Clifford's tank before. BUT, I want to treat him right away and don't have any bottled water on hand.
I was thinking about maybe filtering the tap water with a Brita pitcher and then treating it with API Stress Coat. However, I'm concerned that the carbon in the filter will get into the water and I'm assuming that could be bad.
So my question is should I filter tap water and then treat with stress coat, or should I not filter?
