conditioner

I read alot about water conditioner and all those things people add...i get my water off of a privet well. its rain water and ground water from an underground spring...we have been told we could sell our water because of its purity lvl...
do i need to worry about the conditioners and such?

I also have a well with really good water. I was advised to use it anyway. The tetra BettaSafe conditioner I bought says it also does something for metals in the water. Which well water is likely to have.

We'll have to see what the experts say....I've only had my fish for two days.

Even in well water there are heavy metals (years ago, I had well water, and my water had so much metal and gunk in it it was orange >.<) so it's best to use water conditioner anyway :)

I'm newer to Betta fish and I did some research about the types of supplies I may need. It said that conditioner would be good to have even if you have good well water (like me) in your home. Well water does have a lot of metals in it so I'd suggest using conditioner.

I recommend using Prime conditioner. It will remove heavy metals.
