I used tank water, (turtle not fish) 2 years ago. It worked fantastic in making my tea. There really was a noticeable difference between that and the other tea I made with just tap water. But now keep in mind I don't foliar spray compost tea. I use it when transplanting seedlings and that's it. So your results may vary.
