No water conditioner :-(

I was planning on doing a water change on Clark Gable's tank ready for my new betta tomorrow and then realised I have no water conditioner, I can't go anywhere tomorrow to get any either, what can I do? lol

Well... this may sound awful but I'd hold off on the water change a few days till you can get some. =[ Or see if any of your neighbors have some.

Good luck!

I dont have water conditioner at all for my bettas, theyre just fine, i let the water age though. Im thinking yours will live through one water change with no conditioner.

I have seen a betta dye from getting his water changed without conditioner, because there was chlorine in the water. Its better to just wait a couple days..

You must be lucky. Even though he chlorine will go away with aging metals and others chemicals can still remain.

I'm going to hold off with the water change, the only thing that has been living in the betta tank for the last 2 weeks are my shrimp so the water should be OK for the next couple of days

My cousin's betta died because she forgot to put conditioner in the water when she did a water change and the next morning the fish was dead.
