Best Water Conditioner?

I have been looking at the PetCo store to see the different types of conditioners specifically for Betta's and I was wondering what everyone elses preferences were for their Betta's? I already use a salt when I do my water changes....But looking for a conditioner to add to the water for better quality.

Water conditioner should always be used even if you're using salt already, and to be honest I'm not sure if there is a 'best' out there, I do know what I like however. :)

I personally like using NovAqua Plus (with Echinacea, Vitamins and Anti-Virus Protection) for my water conditioner and AmQuel Plus which removes Nitrate, Nitrite, Ammonia, Chloramines and Chlorine, and toxic organics found in older water. I like to 'premake' my water with NovAqua, AmQuel, and salt in a water jug for when it's needed later. I've been using these products for several years now.
These were suggested http://www.bettatalk.com/water.htm
I know others prefer using Prime which is also an excellent choice.

All conditioners do what they are advertised to do.

What sets them apart are bang for the buck. Do you want to count out 20 drops per gallon of water which some brands make you do, or do you prefer the concentrated 2 drops per gallon version? If the latter is more your style, PRIME is the only way to go.
