Water For Triops? Help

    I've become really interested in inverts, none more so than triops!
    Does anyone have any idea as to what water to use for them? I keep seeing 'use RODI water' 'no don't, there aren't any minerals' 'use tap water w/ dechlorinator' 'the dechlorinator might kill them' I don't have access to "bottled spring water" and I'd prefer to use something I already have ready access to. I have a runoff creek near me, an RODI unit, and I can use tap water with dechlorinator.

    Yeah. You can use tap water and dechlorinator. I do it all the time and I have a high success rate with brine shrimp. I also think the high ph is good for invertebrates(?) whereas RODI and spring water is void of them.
