Hey Cichlid People,

Just wondering what you think is the best type of water to mix with medications for the creation of stock solutions?
Mostly, I have encountered medications being mixed with distilled water. Distilled water has 0 TDS, therefore dry powders/crystals of medicines dissolve more easily.
In my medical arsenal, I like to keep powder/crystals of Acriflavine, Malachite Green and Methylene Blue.

Please share your thoughts.

I have used Malachite Green and Methylene Blue to treat fungus outbreaks on WC fish. But, did not use anything other than the local/de-chlorinated water to pre-mix those solutions before treating the fish with it. I have only used distilled water as part of a pre-mix solution, when treating food with Metronidazole.
