I don't get why would he be fine in the smaller tank and when it's a larger one he's getting sick.

You put conditioner in the water before putting him in, right?

You need to use it every time you change the water. It takes chlorine and chloramines out of the water to make it safe for fish.

I'm not sure if bottled water has chlorine in it. Tap water needs to be treated. As far as cycling goes, you can google fishless cycling and that should give you some info on it.

I'm using the drinking water from our fridge, you know, when the fridge has a ice and water thing with it? It says it's filtered. I haven't been treating it because I figured that water would be ok.
