Is Zinc saltwater safe?

Since my copper scare I am sacred to use any connection or fitting (in the water, in-line fittings, or connections) without wondering is this fitting/connection safe.

Can I use a Zinc fitting for water which will be used in my tank?

Use plastic for what you can find in that material or other inert material. The systems we put together, the plumbing is pretty much all heavy duty plastic. Don't have to worry about fowling the water with good ole plastic.
We, as a people, know so much more about outer space than we do about our own oceans. This lack of knowledge can very well spell the dangers that lay in wait for us.

The oceans surely would swallow us before a rock comes down to smite the planet of it's life.
