Q: We have a koi and goldfish pond with a few plants in it. We have heard that we should add salt to the pond, but we are unclear about how much is OK, how much is too much, what it does and whether it will hurt the plants. A: Let's cover the reason why first. The fish's body is saltier than the water in the pond. So, water wants to even out the two different salt levels to one average level. The fish have to expend calories to keep salt in and water out of their body. They have a slime coat, scales, gills, kidneys and skin all trying to keep the water out, but they are constantly breathing and swallowing water in. This energy could be used for growth, immune system work, etc., if the water were saltier.

Resting on the table before me are six bottles of hydrogen peroxide solution in various shapes and sizes. Did the CVS truck wreck, you might ask? No, at least not that I have come upon. I have accumulated this collection by virtue of having a husband whose style of procurement differs greatly from mine. If he or one of our children has a scrape, for example, he tends to go to the store and buy a bottle of hydrogen peroxide. Similarly, if he sees a new scent of dish detergent or shampoo, he buys it, regardless of the stash already on hand at home.
