It's usually just nitrogen degassing that happens with aging. The bubbles are probably from the mesh over your faucet. If you're worried about it, I'd just let it debubble over an hour, then use it.

I use plain old tap water with Prime. It love that stuff - dechlorinates, dechloramines, removes heavy metals and detoxifies ammonia and nitrite. Happy me, happy fish. Also, it lasts forever because it is so concentrated, so happy bank balance too. :)

I have a question about water changes. I have read since I have a 3 gallon tank I should change 50% in 4 days and it is best not to take the betta out of the tank. How can you keep from changing the water temperature with adding new water? It just seems if I keep the temp in the tank at 78-80 new water will be much colder even having it set a day before adding it.

You can take a clean mug and put some of the conditioned aged water in it and microwave it for a minute or two.Then add it back to the rest of the aged water and see what the temp is after that. Keep doing that until you've got the temp where you want it.


I personally never let water sit out to age, treating it with water conditioner is enough. I got good enough with water changes that I could get the water out of the tap to be right at 80 degrees.
