I like the Trend

John K Jordan
For diamond (and CBN) I use the Trend lapping fluid (https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B004NPIMU8). I understand water is OK but might need some care on hones made from steel. One gentleman told me he used water with a steel CBN Tormek wheel and it rusted.

I was told to never use fluid for diamond hones that is traditionally used for stone wheels (oil, kerosene,etc.) but I don't know why. I read on another forum that some people have success with mineral spirits on diamond.
