Dehumidifier
 
I had a weird idea. What if rather than adding dechlor to water, I just used water out of a dehumidifier. It shouldn't be chlorinated, but would it be okay for fish? My common sense tells me that it might not work because of the way the water was acquired, but what is your opinion? Will it work?

Don't do it. Water has minerals and such that fish require. I've been told that the fish will not survive in that type of pure H2O.

Okay thanks I expected that type of answer. Dechlor would be easier any way.

even dehumidifiers get buildup after a while so it must have minerals... probably not a good idea still..
