Thanks Christina. I will look it up and see how to get a report or something. We have had alot of rain this year. Like way more than normal. I remember reading somewhere that there is no way possible to make tap water safe for humans and fish. Yep Ive had them well almost a year...heh...no one has lived that long! I think I may have to go the bottled water route for the bettas at least. My corys and other fish seem to have no problems with my tap. So just something in it that kills betta fish.

It has GOT to be something in the water. There are just some things we have no control of and if the water is bad, it doesn't matter how often you change the water or how good of care you give your fish. You take great care of your fish!!! I am SO sorry this happened to you again.

Ty DQ. Guess I will see what bottled water I can get. Thats not gonna be cheap but hey,if it keeps them alive. Should i do half tap,half bottle or all bottled water? I dont want to put them into shock with much different water.

I agree with everyone else it has got to be something in the water. Have you tried boiling the water before you put it in the tanks? If so I would go with bottle water and do all bottle water just gradually change them over. I am sorry about your fish and I hope you can figure it out soon.

Wow that would take a lot of pots lol. You should buy gallons of drinking water in bulk - like at Costco or Sams Club. I think I saw you can get like 6 gallons jugs in one package for one price instead of buying 6 jugs each being __ dollars.

I would stick with store brand bottled water too. It keeps the costs down.
Good luck!
