Can I use distilled water?
 
Hey guys, I was wondering if it is alright to use distilled water in my tank? I usually get R/O water from my LPS but their pump is broken and I need to do a water change.

I've noticed that places like Publix sells distilled water by the gallon and I'm hoping I can use it after Priming it.

Thanks guys.

Distilled water is basically RO water, no minerals, neutral PH, etc.

So I'm guessing it is safe to use in my tank, correct?
