  • Spring water, mineral water and other bottled waters can vary widely in their composition, depending on the source, and they are not a pure source of water. They can vary from soft and acidic to hard and alkaline, and in some cases may be no more suitable for your fish than your tapwater or other source! It is also likely to prove expensive for larger amounts. Check the analysis on the bottle if you decide to use bottled water, and/or check the basics with your own test kits.

  • Just use tap water with a good dechlorinating water treatment. You can use filtered water, but use the dechlorinator, too, just to be sure!
