    The best way to treat water for a Betta fish, and any fish, is to use a water conditioner to remove chlorine and chloramine and to neutralize heavy metals that may be present in the water.
    You can also allow water to sit out in an open container like a big bowl or bucket for 24 hours and the chlorine will evaporate making the water safe for the fish.
    Good luck.
