Fish helping to protect our water supply

Bluegills are being used to continuously monitor drinking water in San Francisco and New York. Read about it here and here

Wouldn't it be neat to have one of those monitoring systems for our tanks? You could be e-mailed or paged if your fish were in any way unhappy!

Now that is a really great idea. Someone actually came up with an idea, that makes sense and is so simple.

i really like the "...big cities are using bluegills... as a sort of canary in a coal mine..." part.

lets let the animals take the fall if out water is dirty.

and sensors? im doubtful that they've invented a scanner that scans multiple fish and can read stuff like that, there probably hooked up or something.
