    You should see what happens when your dog 'sips' the change water from a salt water :giggle:

    Seriously - I think your fish will be fine. When in doubt - water change!

    My cats drink from my tanks all the time, no problem. Just have to clean up any stray hairs.

    Good morning,

    Agreed. I think your fish and dog should be fine. I had a cat years ago that would drink from the tank, until she fell in and that solved that issue. Never did her any harm other than a bruised ego. lol
