Distilled water is basically JUST H2O since it's collecting the steam from boiling water and condense it back to a liquid.
Distilled water is ... IMO
... fairly useless as it lacks any dissolved nutrients / minerals vital for life functions of some aquatic life. That's my most times, it mixed with treated tap water, or you add minerals / nutrients to it.
Unless your tap's just got outrageous contaminants, just get a quality de-chlorinator like Seachem Prime.
