    Safe water conditioners

    So I asked my boyfriend to get some new water conditioner. I usually use reptisafe. But this time he accidentally bought this, it's Zilla water conditioner but I'm unsure if it is safe for snakes, geckos and such. It's for aquatic reptiles and amphibians.

    I'm sure it's safe, basically makes water drinkable for semi-aquatic reptiles who live in it. So it would be drinkable for all other animals too. Just don't add too much. Better to use too little than too much LOL.

    I just give my snakes straight tap water.

    The one thing I found that you can count on about Balls is that they are consistent about their inconsistentcy.

    Re: Safe water conditioners

    I give my snakes soda and orange juice, i think they like it because they dont complain. Just kidding lol hopefully no one has ever done that. I give my snakes the same bottled water that i drink, but im thinking about getting reptisafe because ive heard its good. As for your question i suppose its fine to use the zilla brand

    That product is sure fine as already said, maybe unnecessary but not harmful.

    I drink filtered tap water using one of those Brita pitcher and use that for my animals too.
