    Is the brand Dasani water safe to use to top up ?

    Their website states that their water is purified and remineralized for bottling. A PDF report on their site also states that they add in salt (did not say what type), potassium chloride and magnesium sulfate. If you have your doubts, just go with distilled water like Life brand and such.

    It also depends on the marine system you are keeping.

    Coral tank are more sensitive to presence of silicate, phostate content in normal tap water which encourage diatom growth. If FOWLR system, perhaps normal tap water (treated with conditioner) will suffice. For off the shelf DI water, Life brand is cheap and readily available.
