I am currently using fish tank water in one of my test tube set ups on a queen that may be infertile as an experiment. My thought process is that there is probably a lot of nutrients and good bacteria alive in my fish tank. This along with water like this being a similar water source they'd have in the wild made me decide to do this. Should I not do this and keep up with distilled water instead? Has anyone else tried this?
