Well I suppose if you aren't doing huge water changes you could use the septic, juts gotta be sure not to put too much at a time down there, it can flood the leech field and the tank.

I have a septic as well and have not thought twice about using it for all my tanks. lol I have never flooded out the system even putting over100g at a time down there. ( when i do both big tanks back to back).

I have a mix of many different saltwater fish amongst my tanks, but I love my Tangs most of all.

pouring the saltwater on the ground will kill any plant life there. as for it getting into a well by the time it leaches through all that soil the water will be salt free.

I have a VERY small lobster and he is just fine with fish and shrimp under an inch. The lobster I have has no claws. Florida spiny lobster.

Nice to see a new build red. I dump all of my waste water into the woods. I use it to control the woods, since it is literally arms reach out my living room window. It has caused no issue to my spring or the cistern where the water gathers. It is only harmful in mass quantities. You can actually use diluted saltwater to fertilize your garden, even more effectively if you protein skim. 1-10 ratio if i remember correctly.

Thanks everyone for posting!


I am not sure yet if I would go for the lobster, but if I did it would be one similar to what was suggested.

As for waste water, I probably wouldn't have to worry about my water getting in a neighbor's area/well, as none of them are super close by to where I would be dumping (we have about an acre of land). There are so many options for water!

Thanks for all the opinions/responses everybody! I really, really appreciate reading your ideas!

Being able to dump my water into the woods is the greatest thing ever.

I use my waste water to kill the weeds along my walk and drive way.

Thanks again everyone for posting! I am not sure if I mentioned that I plan on an algae scrubber for this tank, so that should cut down a little bit on the need for PWCs (not completely though, ). I am a little bit scared though, as it seems like most of them are a DIY kind of thing, but I am sure I can manage it with some help .

Thank you!
