Can I use tap water in my fish tank?

Our water quality standards ensure that tap water is safe for humans to drink
Water quality standards ensure that tap water is safe for humans to drink. These standards don't take into account the specialised requirements of fish or other aquatic organisms, which are kept in fish bowls, aquariums or ponds filled with tap water. That means tap water may need further treatment to make it suitable for fish keeping. For further information, speak to your local aquarist.
