No matter where your filter is the gas exchange takes place at the surface of the water in your tank. Right?

The old lady down the street from me who has been winning awards for breeding fish since the 60s says smoking affects fish. So, I must concure.

My health is far from what it should be, and I've made it a serious priority to change that.
It's great that you're trying. I'm really sorry to hear about your sister.
Have you tried the nicotine gum? I used that to quit, it worked, and I've never had a cigarette since.
IMHO smoking is not good for anyone, not people, not fish, no one with the exception of the tobacco companies. (I apologize in advance for offending any of our members who smoke)
I agree with the old lady down the street from stiltman!

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

I am glad I asked, I like to see all the different opinions posted by members.

Herky- Yes I have lids on all my tanks. I would also like to say I am hoping everything works out for the best for you, my mum had cancer aswell, but she didn't tell me until I was older, she had her hair cut really short and said she was trying a new style, but she was preparing herself for chemotherapy, she pulled through and I am wishing you the same luck I had.
