anyone else have well water?

So, i live out in the country and our tap water is well water. I know we aren't supposed to use the distilled gallons of water - i was originally using those until i saw a post on here that said we shouldn't. I don't really like using the tap water 'cause the water looks a little cloudier for the first few hours but when it settles it usually clears up (especially in my 10g with the filter) - but i wanted to know if there is anything special i should add to the water or any other options i should look into. I'm using Aqueon Water Conditioner for Bettas

I've got my new guy, hank, in a 1.5g bowl with daily 100% water changes (i think he might have fin rot) and my Cash in a 10g by himself with a 3g filter

I have well water and don't use any dechlorinator or conditioner products, however, well water can be different from state to state-county to county...it can even be different due to how deep the well is and vary with seasons.....lots of rain or drought can change the chemistry and if you live in a heavy farming or industrial area-pollutants can change the well water chemistry sometimes......

Regardless of source water-its always a good idea to acclimate to water chemistry with large water changes if the fish is removed for water changes-especially 100% water changes....
