RE: [APD] Can one just give up?
I've made it clear that it is instant death if *anyone* uses the fish
buckets for anything else :-)
I take it one step further and use color-coded buckets. I have found that
local hardware stores seem to have both white and black buckets, so I
*always* use *only* white buckets for fish uses (mainly since it's a lot
easier to see if a fish just had a siphon-ride in a white bucket than a
black one), and I *always* use *only* the black buckets for everything
else. It's a really easy system with very little chance of accidental
misuse of a bucket, and it doesn't cost anything to implement when you
first buy buckets.
BTW, I have noticed that many of the RED buckets aren't FDA approved while
the other common colors are, which leads me to believe that there is
something about the red pigment used in the plastic that may be toxic.
Probably would be best to not use red plastic products for fish stuff
unless they are specifically rated for food/agricultural use (which is
basically what the "FDA Approved" means).
