Trying again with triops.; Cannot prevent disease.

Hey all! Haven't been here for a while.

Alright I've got a few questions so let's get started,

1. I bought a large bottle of Fiji water for hatching triops, will Fiji water work?
It says it has only natural electrolytes and minerals and is very soft. It also says "untouched by man, until you open the cap"

2. I have failed to find a real solution for the "fungus/bacteria/what the heck is that!" That has been killing my triops every time for the past couple years, sooo, I have decided to stick with the oak bark tea solution. should I just buy oak bark? Or harvest it myself? Or is there a better solution for preventing disease (I have tried almost everything!).

3. If I didn't use oakbark tea would silver biotics work for fungus or whatever it is (it looks like fungus)?

Thanks!

Alright I went ahead and tried Fiji water and it seems to work just fine.

And I don't think silver is safe but I could have overdosed it.
And I went ahead and harvested my own oak bark.

Hey, I think im going to try an experiment with natural antibiotics on triops,
I will try things like grapefruit seed extract and oregano oil. Possibly goldenseal and other kind of herbs, if you are interested it will be in the tank logs section.
