Is this idea totally nuts?
Ok...I have been trying to research this online for some time now with NO luck. I was told the bacteria in "septic tank bacteria" that you can buy for your septic system (I assume such as rid-x) appears to be the same as what is in the "pond bacteria" we buy to keep our ponds clean. I cannot find anything to prove this theory either way. It would be fantastic if it were true because the septic tank bacteria is CHEAP compared to the pond bacteria. BUT i'm not brave enough to try it. I don't want to take a chance on hurting my fish, plants, etc. I'm sure (if it were true) the pond bacteria people would NOT want us to know. If I understand correctly the septic bacteria is supposed to be non-toxic, etc. and basically do everything our pond bacteria does. So...I'm just curious if anyone else has thought of this, researched it or tried it.
