it is drinking water, so it does have some. and i add a liquid fert that is supposed to have the minerals needed. i don't trust my tap water where i'm at. it is the only real thing i can come up with to have killed off my first attempt's fish (i'm across the street from a Pfizer pharmaceutical's plant and am concerned with contamination. we don't drink the water here, i'm not giving to my fish).
