Cig Smoke bad for tank?

I live with a smoker. Will cigarette smoke be bad for my marine tank?

Thanks,

-Maximo

I'd be more concerned with your own health than the aquarium.

Yeah I guess so. Although, my Grandmother is 75 years old and she has smoked for 50+ years. Go figure.

I've read that it isnt good for a fish tank, but I would also tend to think that youd have to be a pretty heavy smoker. Remember that Oxygen exchange occurs with the surrounding air, so any impurities in the air can also affect the water. I cant prove that, I've only read it.

She's very lucky and certainly the exception to the rule.. I'm not sure how much harm could be done to your tank, but I'm pretty sure nothing good can come out of it.

She does cough a lot and quite hard. Sometimes I expect to see a lung land in her lap!

I'll be driving down the street and see a good looking girl in the car next to me.. i'm thinkin "Hey baby!"... 90% of the time the next thing I see is her puffin on a cig. Completely turns me off. I dont understand how people get addicted to such a horrible thing.

Let me clarify; I don't understand how poeple GET addicted to cigarettes. I've fully inhaled on a few cigarettes and after feeling dizzy and wanting to hurl I did not want to do it again. I have lived with at least one smoker my entire life. Seems like I would have been somewhat acclimated. So what draws people to do it again?

I do understand how one could get addicted to something like alcohol or sex or eating.. those things are enjoyable.. but cigarettes?

I don't mean to draw this out. It's just that I have lost many family members(at least 4) to cancers most likely caused by cigarettes. The day my Grandpa learned he had lung cancer he quit cold turkey.. he died a year and a half later.. my Grandma still smokes. I guess you are right.. I don't understand.

maximo you have never smoked so you dont understand. the first time you do it you get sick true but after many times doing it because you look so cool it becomes addictave plus not everyone gets that sick this is way off topic
