Hi everyone! I have posted on this forum a long time ago with my old fish Axel, who unfortunately has passed on. However, I do have a new betta fish named Dobby. He has been living for about three months now in a 2 gallon filtered tank. Though, the filter started leaking and I tried cleaning it out to no avail. I finally broke down to buying Dobby a new 2.5 gallon tank.
I used to use filtered water bought from the store by the gallon, then read online that it is not good for your fish. I filled his new tank with tap water then put in some water conditioner. I placed in one of my new Tetra Easy Strips and all of the readings come out normal for the new tank, except the water says "hard." His current tank he's in (I haven't moved him over yet) is "very soft" on the scale. I was wondering if it would be harmful to go ahead and make this dramatic shift over to the tank or should I do it little by little?
Any help is appreciated. Thank you! :)
