Question bottled water?

Hi,
just want to do a 50% water change since I just tested my ammonia and it is way high....(only changed the water with a 100% 3 days ago) but this is a 1 g tank...anyways MY QUESTION is can i use my room temp bottled nestle water? Usually i use the tap but the temp will be off and I need to fill the 50% tank back up. Do I still put conditioner in it?
thanks

first, I have seen the tank you have and it's 1/2 gallon, which is fine but you may be overdosing the conditioner. yes you can use bottled water no you do not need conditioner if you use it.

You can adjust the tap to match the water temp...

If you use bottled water I would also use dechlorinator-often bottled water is just filtered tap and it still can contain chlorine/chloramine...better safe than sorry kinda deal......
Just to note-bottled water can sometimes lack the needed minerals the fish needs and long term use should be avoided unless you supplement the water.
