How to Condition Water for Betta Fish

Ensuring your fish have the best aquatic environment is key to keeping them happy and healthy. At Hikari®, we offer many products tailored to helping you keep the water for your betta fish ideal. Betta fish are the most popular fish and are a great first choice for budding enthusiasts. However, like all fish, owners need to be vigilant in not just making sure your betta receives proper nutrition but that their habitat is properly conditioned and maintained too.

Our mission at Hikari® has always been to scientifically formulate our products to fit the individual nutritional needs of each of your aquatic pets. Whether for food or environment control, our Species Specific approach reflects that each species is unique and their diet and care should be unique as well. We are proud to offer a number of different products designed to address the environmental needs of your betta fish.

Our Betta Ultimate® water conditioner is a great all-in-one option to provide the best water quality for your bettas. Our patented technology helps eliminate chloramines and ammonia and detoxifies nitrite and heavy metals. It also helps regulate the pH of the water by boosting alkalinity and adds the essential electrolytes your bettas need for optimum health and reduced stress caused by poor water quality.

Our Beta Ultimate® can even be used with tap water – eliminating the need to buy bottled water! It is easy to use and is formulated so that you do not have to worry about overdosing. Adding one drop to 16 ounces of water is all you need to ensure your betta has the best aquatics environment possible.

If your betta requires more rigorous treatment options, as in the case of fungal or bacterial infections, our Betta Revive® and Herbal Betta Revive® are a great first line of defense treatments. These products provide rapid results in as little as three days, and can treat and reduce the disease conditions caused by many different protozoan, bacterial or fungal infections.

The Herbal Betta Revive® in particular is a great choice for owners looking for a more natural treatment option for their fish. Our Betta Revive® products are great for addressing and solving immediate health concerns, and when followed up with Betta Ultimate®, makes sure your betta stays happy and healthy for years to come.
