It's probably better if you set the fogger/mister up with a separate watersupply, and just use RO/DI/distilled water. otherwise you may clog the nozzles on a mister, and any of these will end up leaving scattered mineral deposits around the tank/glass/etc.

I've heard people claim that using a fogger w/ tank water will spread bacteria, but not sure if this is much of an issue, since the critter will likely be swimming in the water anyways.
