Not a necessary. The more natural water condition the better. The sun-bathed procedure is aimed to evaporate the chemical from the tap water.

Me? No,I don't use any of water conditioners. My setup for Betta was very simple:tank and a male fish,nothing else. Please check my very first post on the "Betta Pictures" thread for pictures which I have uploaded.

I was talking to Alienbetta1 actually but that's cool. =] I want to know about his setup and what he's doing with his water currently.

And no Alienbetta1 I don't think fridge water would be safe. If you're going to use filtered water use a britta filter or some gallons of filtered water.

You should get some waterconditioner like Tetra's AquaSafe or Jungle's Start Right. Both are sold at Walmart for cheap. They turn regular tap water into safe aquarium water.

If you haven't been conditioning your water then that's why your fish are dieing.

Also the 24hour sit thing will get rid of the poisonous-to-fish chlorine that's in the water but it won't get rid of the poisonous-to-fish chlorimines.

If you haven't been conditioning your water you should really start.

If my above post seems rude I had no intention of it being that way. =[

I realized this morning when I re-read it that some people might take the bold text and lack of emotes as a stern or rude tone. =[

I bolded the text so that people could more easily see which kinds of water conditioner you can get for cheap and where. =]

I'm sorry if I offended you Alienbetta1, or anyone else with that post. I'd edit it but it's not giving me the option right now. =/

I hope that your next betta fares better and that you figure out what's wonky with you're water. =]

Good luck! =]

Yep, the water conditioner is very inexpensive, and you only need a very small amount per gallon of water. The bottle I have is a 60ml bottle, and the type I have you only need 1ml per gallon - I think it cost maybe a few dollars at most. Sorry your fish have been dying, that sucks. If you have a good pet store, you should ask them any questions you have. I probably grilled the girl at my pet store for 20 minutes on things! Hehe

Be careful with pet store advise....most, not all, give poor advise and their main objective is to sell you something you don't need.
