    A couple of weeks ago, we had a few days of rain, in which I collected two large buckets of rain water. After the buckets were full, I put a lid on 'em (to keep misquitoes from housing in the water) and placed them next to a wall...
    now here is my question...
    Will the buckets begin to get mossy or grow algea on the inside? If so, will this hurt the quality or safety of the rainwater for my VFTs?? [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/confused.gif[/img]

    You know in nature the plants live in bogs with all sorts of algae and moss. If anything the algae and moss will help purify the water!

    They say if you play a Microsoft CD backwards, you hear satanic messages. Thats nothing, cause if you play it forwards, it installs Windows.

    You could also cover the buckets with something opaque.

    I didn't waste my college education after all [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile_m_32.gif[/img] Seriously, no light - no algae. No access - no mosquitoes.
