Not something I'd do, seems like it'd get expensive. I'm not sure that I trust it to have all the necessary minerals or that it has been conditioned, just sounds like a gimmick to me. I'd rather use my tap & add a little Prime but then I have 3 10g, 2 5g, 1 5.5g, 1 46g & 2 2.5g tanks.

I agree with shellieca. ^

Is there something wrong with your water? Is it unstable?

They sell a liter bottle for like $3 here. It is a gimmick and really for convenience, but who knows what that water actually is and if it's actually better than your tap water. It might not be.

To me, if your tap water isn't good for whatever reason I would say it would be better to invest in buying some spring water and have some add in some water conditioner and it'll still come out WAY cheaper since a gallon of that is definitely under a dollar.

Don't buy that water.. It's pretty expensive. Tap water with some conditioner would be much better.

What kind of fin issues? A water conditioner isn't going to prevent or fix fin issues. Prime is usually what's recommended because it takes much less than most & does pretty much everything.

Prime is probably the best water conditioner but water conditioner will not fix fin problems. What type of issues is he having?
