Try laying a glass slide down in the bottom of the waterbath after you swish the existing bubbles off the sides and bottom of the bath....watch the bubbles behave!  
           No  - I don't know why.

Dear Kirsten

I've tried both, and find that tap water (presumably from all the aeration
in the pipes) makes bubbles on the side of the bath that are ALWAYS released
when you are cuting difficult section like lymph node or spleen.Of course
you can tap the water bath to release the bubbles, but it looks a bit
strange to be seen giving your unsuspecting bath a smart rap every so often.

So, my 2c (recesion adjusted) worth - use dist H2O.
