Some myths never die. Distilled or RO might be a problem if you tried to rear a tadpole in nothing but pure water in a glass vessel. In a vivarium the stuff is so reactive that it quickly picks up minerals plus, your frogs are submerged in it anyway. It is NOT a problem to use RO or distilled exclusively for misting OR watering in a vivarium. I've even been rearing tadpoles in it for years. I just add a handful of leaves, a pinch of compost, and the mineral problems are solved.

RO and distilled water are effectively the same thing. They are just different methods for achieving 99.9% pure water.

I wonder why everyone has such different experiences with this?
They don't. The alleged problems with RO are like stories of frogs getting impaled on spiny broms or cattle breaking their legs in prairie dog holes. Lots of people claim it happens but finding an eye witness to such an event is impossible.
