Water Conditioner is a MUST. Prime is good, so is NovaPlus Water conditioner.

Aqua safe is good. I use it sometimes because its cheap, but you run out fast. Prime would be better, more expensive but definitely worth the price

My tank is still cycling, but it is tap water. How do you guys feel about bettasafe? It's a tetra product.

Also, how do you know if the water is safe?
Never tried betta safe, but you can just use any water conditioner. I use API. As for cycling, is it a fish in cycle? If not, do you have a source of ammonia? The cycling process does not start until you add ammonia.

The tank won't cycle if there's tap water. The BB will die because of all the added chemicals. Please do your research BEFORE you buy the fish.

ANY water conditioner is completely safe, no need to worry about the brand. Just please, save your fish. He's technically being poisoned alive right now. :l

Great job callistra for finding that, Amazon directions must have been wrong. It always pays to double check and get it straight from the website or see if the bottle has a 800 phone number in it, some do I had to call when I was using Aqueon as my water conditioner, now I use Prime.

Calm down! lol he has lived happily in his 1 gallon for months now, he's a healthy boy, water changes twice a week.

I've been adding crushed flakes to the tank that is cycling. I also added the specified amount of conditioner for it. Is the only way to know the tank is perfectly safe for my beta without the expensive liquid kit? Tank still needs plenty of time to cycle so I'll buy it if need be, but cash is tight :s
