I learned my lesson about water changes..

I have a cat, a cat that is a perminate state of drug-like delierium and high [ See: Runs around none stop, chasing invisible objects, and running head long into walls...repeatedly ].


Well, He has gave my hands and arms a nice little collection of shallow scratches and cuts.

And I realized today, that doing a water change with arms in said codition was.. well, Bad.


My arms were burning in pain, specially when I mixed up the new salt-water. and still are.


Needless to say, I've learned my lesson.

I would not say SW is good for wounds. Expecially tank saltwater. Depending on how suceptable you are to infections, etc an open cut and going into a saltwater tank could find yourself in a heap of pain from an infection.

Don't have fish, Just a Condilactus Gigantae, Electric Blue Hermit, and a few blue reef hermits.

I don't know if I agree about saltwater not being good for wounds. When I go diving, any wounds I have, heal very fast.
But with the closed system, I agree, not good for the tank inhabitants, elbow high rubber gloves would probably be in order.

Its true, I was taken to the beach when I had chicken pox, Two days there and I was completly over the chickenpox.

Its also served me on many other occasions, such as common colds, once with numonia.


Fresh, open beach-type seawater is good for you.

Aquarium saltwater is no doubt not, I mean.. One look at the skimmer can tell you all the gook that gets in you...

Oh god.. I wish I hadn't thought about that..
