Bottled H20 vs tap

It's me again - Nervous nellie! I will probably start cycling my 5 gallon tank this weekend (If my Dr. Foster & Smith order gets here!) and just want to know: is bottled spring or "drinking" water better than tap? I know Tad, my 5 year old Fire Bellied Toad has really thrived on it, but this new aquarium will be a true "aquarium" and not a toad house! It will house 2 ADF's (and no fish). Thanks for your advice!
And I do plan to add conditioners to the water...

If you are using a product like Prime (my personal favorite) then using tap water is perfectly fine and less expensive than bottled water.

i agree, unless your tap water is no good...there's no reason to spend alot of money on special water.

Thanks for mentioning the tap water quality. I tested my tap water w/ my API test kit before I began using it.
