    I JUST got my new Brinsea Octo20 Advance. It is my FIRST incubator! Im very excited to fire it up but I was wondering what kind of water would be best to use in it? Will regular tap have too much bacteria in it? What about distilled? Thanks!

    Liquid.

    Solid will chill the incubator while vapor may raise the humidity excessively.

    I just use what comes out of tap.
