Maybe. take a sample of your water down the the pet store and see what you have in there. Watch for high Ammonia, Nitrites, Nitrates and Phospahtes. If Ammonia and Nitrites are high you'll have problems with fish. Trates and Phosphates in the low range are tolerable.

Subject: Larry LaPrise dead at 93

With all the sadness and trauma going on in the world at the moment, it is worth reflecting on the death of a very important person, which almost went unnoticed last week.

Larry LaPrise, the man that wrote "The Hokey Pokey" died peacefully at the age of 93. The most traumatic part for his family was getting him into the coffin. They put his left leg in. And then the trouble started.

I do the same thing. I have a food grade 55g barrel I store my water in. I have a powerhead in it and a heater in the cold weather. I add the salt 24hrs before I plan on doing the change.
