How are ya's? might be an odd question, but I live pretty close to the beach, is it ok to get some water from the beach and use it for my tank? pending that it is tested before use of course?
Appreciate your feedback on this as it would save me a lot of money on RO water/salt. :lol:
Don't do it. The water from the beach has a ton of runoff and other gunk from the land. You wouldn't pull water out of the river for your freshwater tank, would you?? :(
No if you want to use ocean water you will have to go out like 20 miles. They are to many pollutites in the water near the shore line.
It also does not "keep". It will quickly pollute itself if left in a sealed container for a few days. Mixed water keeps for a long time if kept out of sunlight and stirred every once in a while.
