I set up a 3g for a female betta named Mercedes today!! she is loving the space!! yesterday I set up a 3g for a a male named Maddux (the boy in my avatar)!! he has a terra cotta pot cave that he loves, he slept in it last night!! he is so darn cute!!

I also went to goodwill to see if they had any lights for one of my 3g tank (its really a critter keeper so it didn't come with a light). I ended up with a 10g tank, it didn't come with anything not even a lid but, it was only $5... I did get a nice lamp for $3 so all is good!!

I run out of conditioner pretty fast and its really expensive where I live so I filled the 10g with water, a 1g with water and a small container thats probably 3gs with water. I put them in my closet to sit for a few days so I don't need conditioner... I don't have any water changes until next friday so do you guys think a week is long enought for the water to sit?

To Jessicafish,
Years ago, before they had chlorine removers, we would put our new water in a tub with a small heater and air pump/stone for 24 hrs. With aeration, chlorine will be out of the water in 24 hrs. I've done hundreds of water changes this way and never had a problem.
OS.

Water conditioners CAN do more than remove the chlorine which as OS mentioned will neutralize, but there are heavy metals in the water as well and some cities use Chloramine which is worst than the chlorine, also takes additional water conditioner to neutralize. You can call the water company and ask about these things in your water, they generally are happy to help.

Maybe ordering online will be less costly. The most recommended water conditioner is Prime.

did 90% water change before refilled back with water and add Levamiso HCL for treating the stupid internal parasite that I'm experiencing. Fingers crossed on the treatment
