Just found this about mystery deaths

I'm still researching snail kill info and happened upon this info. In essence what is says is if you have and old house with copper pipes, you got to flush the pipes b4 making your aquarium water or you chance copper poisoning your fish. https://answers.yahoo.com/question/i...7123742AAVBhQc

That's kind of a long shot, your water would have to sit idle in pipes for quite some time for copper levels to build up.. If your home/apt was built between 19.. To now you have copper pipes... The constant movement of water keeps it fresh and clean..

I agree. I just thought it interesting, and posted just in case it ever applied to someone. ( I got mild ADHD and OCD and end up running a lot of water b/c I lose count of my drops of prime. Plus, whenever I'm counting, mom decides she needs help with something. 1,2,( "My hearing aids don't work!") 3?,4?... Start over... 1,2,3 ("The tv show ended.") 4?,5? ... Start over. LOL)
