While I don't believe in keeping fish in a bowl you should never use distilled water to keep fish in. It will kill them eventually. Tap water is perfect for most fish once the chlorine has been removed/evaporated off. You can do this by simply leaving the water in a bucket overnight. I refuse to waste money on water conditioners.

Arrowhead sells multiple types of water. If you see 100% mountain spring water on their label, then its not distilled. That means it still has naturally occurring fluoride and other minerals in it. If you see Distilled water on label, then the water could be distilled municipal /well water. Do not use distilled water for daily use as it does not have necessary minerals. But distill water is probably better than drinking tap water or spring water as "No Fluoride poison in it!"

Distilled water is steam, it has no chemicals or minerals or salts in it at all, its totally pure. Spring water comes out of the ground, it will always contain some salts and minerals

It is quite safe to drink distilled water - rainwater is distilled water (well, almost: it has dissolved air)! but without minerals these can absorb some nutrients from our body

Diustilled water is of course more pure.

Drinking it once will have little or no effect, but the regular drinking of distilled water is not to be encouraged for health reasons. The lack of naturally occurring minerals in this water has raised some concerns.
