Why is tap water dangerous for goldfish?
Tap water is heavily treated with harsh chemicals like chlorine to make it safe for human consumption. This can be fatal for our fish to swim through.
When watching your fish swim in dashes through their tank or sucker down a fresh pile of food flakes, it’s easy to think of them as hearty. Despite the way they can push each other about in a fight to see who can eat the most in 5 seconds, fish are actually fairly delicate pets. It’s easy to upset their health and fish owners must remember this.
Instead of expecting fish to tolerate straight tap water, use a water conditioner to treat their aquarium water.
4 benefits of Nutrafin water conditioner
2. There’s a special herbal blend in Nutrafin Aqua Plus that’s been proven to safely relax your fish. The reduction of stress makes a great difference when transporting fish, whether moving to a new house or a new tank. Even the process of having the water in their tank changed can overexcite them. A relaxed fish is always a healthier fish.
3. This conditioner coats scales and fins to protect against injuries. There’s little more alarming than noticing a scrape on your fish’s scales or a tear in their fins, damage which can occur just from playing in the tank. Sticking a band-aid on them once something has happened is impossible, so it’s important to take steps that will prevent accidents from happening.
4. It’s intended for either freshwater or saltwater tanks so whether you have a Goldie or a Nemo, put water conditioner on your list of must-haves.
The aquarium water conditioner, Nutrafin Aqua Plus, is a lot more important than getting a new sunken ship for them to play in.
