lol, I'm so intrigued with this idea I wanted to test it but wasn't game to try on my tank...so I jumped the fence and urinated in the neighbours pond. Is that wrong?

( Note by Katie) This was a fact that our boss at work (petsmart) told me. He just suddenly told me ,(when i told him I was getting impatient waiting for the tank to be ready to put stuff in it), to pee in my tank..i don't know if i would really be able to live in a house with pee in a tank :S Just the thought of that vapourating in the air *shudders*. Couldn't bring myself to place a fish or anything in something that was peed in..Just seems cruel.. not to mention just plain discusting.. But hey it's a fact we didnt' know right .. If we can call it a fact.

Katie

One interesting fact that not a lot of people know... unless you have some sort of urinary tract infection, urine is completely sterile. So it definately wouldnt have any "beneficial bacteria" but the whole ammonia thing would work.

Its kinda funny when you think about the fact that everyone thinks urine is so dirty and nasty and its actually completely sterile... the issue is after it has left the body, it contains a lot of waste in which bacteria will thrive if given the chance.

yea, I read some kind of article a little while ago written by one of the typical uninformed eco freaks... complaining about the cruising industry dumping however many lbs of human waste into the ocean each year. I just sat back and wondered how this person honestly thinks that it has some horrible effects on such an enormous ecosystem which, in theory will readily consume extra waste, that will slowly be absorbed through the food chain, and possibly help it as a whole. (bacteria eats poo, other stuff eats bacteria... and so on)

People, please remember that altering a word to bypass the word filter is STILL a violation of the user agreement.
