Never use fresh tap water.

Never use fresh tap water.
Always leave tap water standing for at least 24 hours with a tap safe treatment ( dechlorinator ) before putting it in to your tank.
Chlorine and chloramine that is in our tap water is bad for your fish and for your biological filter.

If you do not use tap safe ( dechlorinators ) then leave the tap water to stand for at three days before using it.
