Get your tank cycled using Publix or Zepherhills gallons, u get get a 5 gallon jugs or 10 1 gallon jugs for around 10 bux probably. I kno 1gals are 85 cents here in south florida.That water is good, i used it for a few weeks before i got conditioner. My betta were more than happy! If you cycle your tank with that water, youll only have to use aobut 1-2 gallons a week during water changes, so its a mear 85cents -2 dollars a week, not bad at all. Sorry about your losses! Good luck though!

Yeah, it's a good idea to test it first. I hope the bottled water works out. AlexXx, I wish we had Publix here. They have the best fried chicken and potato salad at their deli!!!

So I tested it. Grrrr. Ph is very low and there is like no kh/gh. Well that sucks!! That was some expensive freaking water then. Ugh.

I also tested the CT tank that had Triton in it. Ammonia,Nitrate and Nitrite are all 0. The tank instantly cycled using media from the panda tank. So it wasnt any of those that killed him. He did have slightly swollen belly the day before,perhaps he was constipated or something. I dunno. I am gonna go check on Luna,hopefully she just isnt awake yet.

I'm in WV and there doesn't seem to be anything wrong with my water...course I use gallons of purified water in my 10 gallons and a hell of a lot of conditioner in my tap water bowls/tanks.

Well I did have two mysterious deaths... but Vito and Karen were both from bad conditions at Walmart and died withen days of coming home with me.

Aww I am so sorry about your loses! I hope you figure this whole thing out. Have you tried contacting (like calling) your water company to ask specific questions? It may be a pain and you might get the run around but don't give up demand answers.

Shouldn't there be some type of Nitrate in the water if the tank is actually cycled?
