Healthy water conditions wherein the water parameters are intact ensure sustaining a healthy fish and other aquarium creatures. Since tap water contains chemicals which are harmful to the fish like chlorine and chloramines, it is essential to remove them to make the water safe for fish.
The chemicals in tap water create toxicity in the tank, which can lead to different fish diseases and infections like fish rot, tail rot, and destroy the fish gill tissue. Since fish breathe through gill, it could obstruct their breathing, which ultimately leads to the death of fish.
Fish that are more susceptible to chemicals get disturbed even with low levels of toxic chemicals present in the tap water. Therefore, it is essential to treat the tap water so that the water quality can be maintained and fish don’t face difficulty in surviving.
