Sorry, R/O or reverse osmosis water is the only way to go or you will have a host of algae isues to deal with. Made that mistake for about a month and paid for it almost a year!
I currently use R/O from Water Depot. Make sure all containers used to hold the water are food grade and will not leach chemicals and syes into the water. A bit of Aragonite gravel in the bottom of the bucket will help prevent this as well.
