Question What do you do with your water changes?

What do you do with your water changes? I usually water all my plants(excluding vegetables) with it. The problem is that I don't know if it is safe to water vegetables with that water.. And, an increasing number of tanks means having more "used" tank water to dispose of.
Anyone know??

No, it will be fine. Indians used to plant a dead fish under each corn plant. Think about it.
However, I wouldn't suggest using water from your hospital tank.

It's mainly water from my fry/growout tanks. I do water changes everyday. And a weekly water change to my other tanks

Dump into the garden. Unless their is meds.

Everything happens for a reason, but the reason isn't always good.

All my water from water changes goes straight into my front flower bed. I use liquid ferts in my tank as it's a planted tank. Since I started adding this water to the flowers they have gone "off". My water changes are dual purpose

If you don't stand up for something you'll fall for anything...
