Fluoride is added to the water system to help minimize tooth decay. I am pretty sure that the fluoride in the water system won't hurt fish

And it makes their teeth strong too!

Fluoride is harmful to fish in excess, but the amount found in tap water should not be harmful. It is found in our salt mixes at varying quantities. R/O treatments remove some fluoride from the water.
