But it's okay if your fish and inverts piss and crap in the tank? That's not like in a toilet? lol Filters don't remove that stuff out of the water, they just contain it in another part of the tank. Until the bb convert it all or you change your filter pads, you are sticking your hands in an actively running toilet. It's just the fish's toilet. You don't believe me? Think about this: What do you do in a toilet?.... you urinate, defecate and vomit. What do fish (saltwater fish I mean) do in their tank?.... eat, urinate, defecate and vomit.
Still don't believe me? Think about this: what is a fish in cycle? It is using the waste material of the fish to cycle the tank. What is the waste material? Urine/urea and feces. OOPS, the same material you put in a toilet.
Let's go even further, say you do a fishless cycle, You are still putting your hands in a toilet once you put the fish in. No matter how you slice it, the tank can be considered the same as a toilet. It's just that you can't see the urine without testing and fish poop is small in a small fish so it's less objectionable. lol
As far as using Red Bull pee, I don't know what effect that would have but it might keep your fish up all night or really hyperactive
Now, aren't you sorry someone started this thread? lol
