Introduction : Indonesia ranks third in the incidence of dermatomycosis. Candida albicans is a fungus that can infect human skin and is quite common in Indonesia. Candida albicans is a commensal flora but if there is a physiological change in the host body such as a decrease in human endurance it can be pathogenic. Candida albicans infection can be detected through laboratory tests. Laboratory tests are important for the provision of adequate therapy. To see the growth of Candida albicans in laboratory tests, a solvent is needed, namely aquades. Aquades are quite expensive and are insuffiecient to exits in the laboratory, so alternatives must be sought that have the same chemical properties as AC water. Objective : to determine the difference in the number of Candida albicans colonies on SDA media with distilled water and AC water. Methods : True experimental research type, posttest only control group design, using the subject Candida albicans group of 20 aquades samples and 20 AC water 20 solvent samples with simple random technique. Data were analyzed using the Mann Whitney comparative test with a significance level of 95%. Results : Both groups had median,minimum,maximum values equal to the avarage ± SD range in the aquades group 10 - 38 CFU/mL and the AC water group 8 - 38 CFU/mL. The Mann Whitney test p value = 0,715 > 0,05. Conclusion : There is no difference between the number of Candida albicans fungus colonies on Sabouraud Dextrose Agar (SDA) media with distilled water and AC water.
