Since I've had my Bettas I've been buying the pretreated water from the pet store but since I'll soon be having a 10 gallon and 2 5 gallons it seems way too costly to continue down that route. We have well water which is supposedly chlorine free and I tested it with (I know they aren't reliable) the API 5 in 1 test strips which give you a ph, nitrite, nitrate, carbonate and general hardness reading. The results were
GH - 60
KH - 240
PH - between 7-8
nitrite 0 and nitrate 0.
So my questions for you fishy experts are will it be alright to add water conditioner just in case there are traces of chlorine in the water and how are my levels according to this strip result? I know ph should be as close to 7 as possible but I know nothing about gh and kh O_o Also, if they are way outta whack what can I buy to treat the water with to make it perfectly livable for my babies =] Thanks in advance
