For Christmas I bought my brother a nice big 55 gallon fish aquarium. What I didn't think about was how he lives down by the Bay now. All his water comes from well reserves. I knew he liked to drink alcohol a lot but didn't realize his brackish water was the reason why.
What makes this hilarious is how my dad always brags about how clean such sources are. A river my brother lives by in particular is something my dad always highlighted. I'm thinking about framing this picture with the caption "New Jersey's Freshest" or something like that.
It's good to know the filter works! The water cleared right up after only a day or two.
