I think she means that she ran out of aged water or filtered (PUR 2 correct?) water. =/ Sweetheart you don't really need to age your water as long as you use water conditioner and let it sit enough/heat it up enough to where it's the same temperature or somewhere near the same temperature as your old tank water. Filtering water isn't even necessary, though it is preferred and I do so.. It'll be ok. =]
A tip for next time though if you still want to filter and age your water before conditioning it:
My mom has been buying Distilled water in gallon jugs for one of our dogs since it has kidney stones. Well at first she was just gonna throw the jugs away. I stopped her and asked her If I could use the jugs to store filtered water in (since my brita pitcher doesn't hold a whole gallon). Since then I fill one or two up each day since I used to be using a 1 gallon hurrican vase for Genie's hospital tank. I'd just take one of the pre-filled jugs and pour it in after I washed everything down. =]
Doing things this way makes life a lot easier for you. =] You can buy jugs of water (it doesn't even have to be distilled they have regular filtered water in jugs too.), pour the water out, filter water with your PUR filter, put it in the jugs, then let them sit like I have. That way they're aged (not required) and filtered. Then you just have to dechlorinate and you're good to go! =] Plus you have a couple spare pre-filtered gallons of water if you mess up on a water change! =]
There's my 2 cents but I'm sure others who aren't complete noobs (I'm a noob not an experienced fish keeper. Genie, and Alakazam (God rest his soul) are (were) my first fish.) could have better advice to give. =] this is just my way of doing things because I'm pressed for time now a days and this makes my life easier. =/
Oh! And the jugs are 83 cents for each jug of Distilled at walmart. I actually just picked up another 4 jugs for our dog today. =] Then again the price may vary since there's a good chance you don't live in my state. XD
