Laughing Hahaha way to be. I would too Wink . I've always wondered this myself, being the little hippy I am, and going out and buying bio degradable cleaners, never tested on animals all this eco crap... Then I come home to my fish tanks, and I'm just like Confused I wonder if there is eco friendly fish tank equipment? But I suppose I'm not using to much energy.
If you're worried or feeling guilty, you can purchase carbon credits to offset the impact of the electricity. Or you could go even further and get some solar panels for your roof. (Of course then there's the whole consideration of how much nuclear energy it takes to create a solar panel).
There's other conservationy things you can do with your fish tank as well. I use the water I take out during changes to water my plants, it's actually great for them, as it's more rich in nutrients than tap water.
When I move to AU, which is in a drought, I plan to collect rainwater primarily for my tanks. The only reason I don't have it going here is because I don't own my house, and I think that my roof material is probably not fish safe.
