Tap water typically contains chlorine, trace amounts of copper and a mix of other chemicals. These minerals could affect the health of Chili Rasbora. 

To overcome these issues, we recommend filling your tank with distilled water. Distilled water is very soft and doesn’t have the high mineral content of tap water. If you do use tap water, make sure that you invest in a water conditioning solution.
