:how about well water? It's not chlorinated, but do you think it has too many minerals in? It does go through a water purifier before I use it, but it is basically just groundwater pumped out of the ground.


This depends upon the water that comes out of the well, in most cases if you could normally use it in a fish tank without killing the fish (fresh not salt) then it should be fine for most amphibians with some exceptions that require water with a low carbonate content (such as the caecilian Typhlonectes natans).
It also depends upon the water treatment that is used on the water as water that is very low in calcium could cause problems with aquatic species (or ones that can't get out of the water) and this could result from softened water.
