generally speaking mineral water is bad. there could be heavy metals or dissolved minerals that'll react badly in a marine environment.


thats why we use total dissolved solids (tds) as an indicator of water purity.


As long as that mineral water isnt carbonated like Perrier, you'll be ok as long as you dont do it anymore.

that sodium bicarbonate a.k.a baking soda will mess with ph and carbonate hardness big time... go r/o di or tap water
