Actually from what I read, I'm more articulate and concise in my communications here than most, so I have absolutely no need to think about re-phrasing my posts. I express exactly what I want exactly in the manner I want it to be perceived. I know exactly what/how I am communicating.

Could you please be more specific as what constitutes an "attack", especially in my above post.
I find it hard to believe that saying what a person is doing is irresponsible is an attack especially considering the treatment I have seen some folks receive over something as silly as the type of fish they choose to keep. I've seen rather viscous personal attacks and insults levied at others over simply differences of opinion.
What I posted is not opinion, it IS irresponsible to just dump any chemicals onto the ground.

In reality it is more that I don't just mindlessly agree with the consensus all the time nor do I simply parrot back info.

"several other people on different threads feel that way as well"

Cool, I'm the topic of conversation.


seriously though, it is your remarks here that constitute more of an attack against me than anything I have posted in this thread.


maybe I should talk to a mod.......

Safety of dumping API test waste water into the drain

I'm sorry I was having a bad day at school, and was very much on edge. We should take this to pm though because BOTH of us will get warned for going off topic.

Edit: I never "parroted" anything, there has et been a trees like this that I've seen since I joined last August....

Now you see if you lived here, in Southern Ca., you would be getting huge fines for doing that as everything here eventually makes it way to the ocean, and the closer you get to the coast the more stringent they are about dumping into the sewers.

Ok we'll then maybe this is a principle of location. In Atlanta the closest beach is 3 hour drive east.

Edit: what do people with fish rooms do? Most of us just drain down the driveway with a python, do they walk the buckets up to a sink?!?

About 50gal a week goes on the garden. Used to get great strawberries but the darn dog eats them all now.

If I'm treating with meds I'll put it on the lawn just in case. Test tube solution just goes down the sink as it's handy and I have to rinse them out.

The Python in my small fish room was connected to a sink so all the waste water went down the drain.

Gotcha for me the closest sink I'd 100+ feet away.

PB_SMITH,

I don't think that what you wrote was attack-ish either, I completely agree with what you wrote.

Also we should all bear in mind that when reading things that others say online, we are missing voice tone, facial expressions and cues, etc.. so it can be easy to interpret things one way when they weren't meant to be that way.

I'm glad you two are making your peace.

And again thank you PB for replying about this subject, for others may come across and read what you wrote and hopefully change their behavior if they are dumping test water on the ground. What do you think about dumping regular old tank water down the driveway? That's what we've been doing, and it's really not that much different than dumping it down the sink in my opinion, which, we don't really have a sink that would work very well for dumping our bucket into anyway.

Edit: I read back what you wrote, and we are not anywhere near an ocean, but we do have rivers. But I don't think we are close enough for our tank water to make it into one.

I guess we could dump it down our sink, but it would be pretty cumbersome, not to mention we do our dishes in there. Dumping it in the bathroom sink is out of the question, it is too small.

I dump my waste salt water down the toilet, waste fresh water goes outside in the yard/garden.
like I said, you can get fined for dumping stuff down the drain/gutters. You can even get cited for washing your car in the driveway in some cities or even washing down your driveway, but that also has to do with the drought conditions we are currently enjoying, so......

and I second your remarks about online communication being devoid of all the little clues and body language that face to face communication uses to determine intent and demeanor.

Trust me, I put on the page exactly what I wish to convey to the reader as precisely and succinctly as possible always taking into account my audience.
