Do you put aquarium salts into it? If so, you might think be careful not to apply it in the same area repeatedly. Salts can easily (and quickly) build up in the soil. Also, if you treat your tank with the anti-ick stuff, a lot of them use a carcinogen (a substance known to cause cancer), so be careful not to pour that on any edibles.

that said, if you have a gold fish, beta, or a pond that is totally natural, you can't get a better water to water your plants with.

i dont think the amount of salts normally used in an aquarium,particularly the size mentioned would have any ill effects. i used to use salt in my freshwater tanks and it wasnt that much.
mollies in particular loved it!

I have a koi pond which I use to water some of my plants. I use my pump to syphon water to my plants next to the pond. Unfortunately, my three year old wisteria died because I watered it too much.

Guess the adage which says, too much of a good thing can hurt you, was true in my case. My other plants however, are doing fine.


The best thing about Spring is that it comes when it is most needed.
