Are you joking or serious?

Wash your loop ASAP with distilled water (Shoppes has it for 2.99)

If you're trying to be cheap (nothing is wrong here), you need distilled water + addictive against algae for two reasons:

1) Non conductive
2) Doesn't crap your blocks and tube with minerals...
3) No seaweeds


Specialized liquids, like Feser One also have anti-corrosive component, anti-algae component, performance improving additives and finally UV reactive component.

Is this all right? For biocide + coolant?

No biocide for Feser, it has it already. Any other chemical may get you into unwanted chemical reaction...prohibited.

Is it a big deal that I used tap water for leak testing? Such a noob I run first thing tomorrow at my grocery to get some distilled water. What kind of biocide is available in here?

Nothing's going to explode, but regular tap water has a wide variety of minerals in it, which over the long term, can lead to buildup of deposits (not unlike the lime in that builds up in your kettle) that can degrade your system's performance. So a few flushes of distilled water could be beneficial long term. As a possible side benefit, distilled water is actually fairly unconductive at first, so an early mistake might - MIGHT - not wreck things. Of course, that's a poor attitude to take, when there shouldn't be leaks in the first place.

Agree with MpG. Not a huge deal, for a day or two not much can build up on your block's cooling fins.
