Ok I'm still researching about chameleons before i buy one and i wanted to know about misting water do i just fill the bottle with sink water or do i have to buy certain water for misting?

RO is just the top of the line filtration. google it, lol. I use water from water bottles as it works perfectly fine.


Good old Britta filter, but it really depends on what quality of water you have in your area. If your water TDS (total dissolved solids) is low then theres no need to filter just use straight from the tap, if it's high then use a filter or if you want buy bottled water.

For misting I use Water from the kettle (boiled water).

For the dripper I use tap water.

I found that spraying with plain tap water made my Cham rub his eyes

It really depends on the water in your area. I don't want my chameleon to get fluoride and our water is now fluoridated. So, I bought a little distiller and that's working well. Reverse Osmosis filtered water is often available in bulk from "Water Stops" and similar places (I know one laundry that sells it). Getting a 5 or 8 gallon container and filling occassionally that will very quickly be faster than buying it by the gallon at the store.

If you decide later on that you want a misting system, it's recommended that you use RO water so you don't clog your nozzles prematurely.


I just buy a couple gallons of drinking water and use that for the mister and the habba mist and now about to be for my new homemade dripper cup =p XD

For years I have used tap water that has been left in jugs overnight so the chlorine can dissipate. Unless the water in your area is not good, this should be fine. (Some of the bottled and treated waters have no minerals left in them.)
