Distilled is fine. But the "best" is RO/DI.

I disagree

While yes, technically, you could use distilled, if you want to have any success in the marine aquarium world, you must use RO/DI. RO/DI guarantees stability in water parameters, and that is a key factor in keeping any marine tank successfully.

What are your plans for this tank? Reef or FOWLER? Other information?
