    Nice one Pete. Do you top up with plain tap water or do you add somthing to remove the chlorine first ? I'm sure Goldfish can handle the tap water but i'm thinking if you change to a species you want to eat later they might not tolerate any chlorine.....silly question but your not going to chew on the goldies are ya ? I'm assuming they are in there just to get everything up and running.
