Re: [APD] Up yer nose with a PVC hose....lol

Fortunately, many of us have conducted carefully controlled  
scientific experiments on this subject.  Some of the more daring  
drink from garden hoses, and have done so since childhood.  (None  
have yet to grow even a second head.)  Others have wrapped their  
daily lunch sandwich in saran wrap for upwards of 30 years, and none  
have yet to grow green hair.)  I chose a much safer experiment - I  
drain and refill aquariums using a garden hose.  My experiment only  
started last December, so I wouldn't expect to see three headed  
snails yet, but I can assure everyone that this practice has not yet  
harmed a single species of algae in my tank.

My apology to those who were following this discussion hoping to  
learn something profound.
