what kinda of salt do I use for my swiming pool?
I just bought a salt water system for my above ground pool ,but it does not state what kinda of salt that I am to use .
Question answered by Robert G
There are two answers. You can buy pool salt at a pool supply place or a home supply center. Expect to pay $7-$10 a bag. Or you can buy water softener salt for $3 a bag. I have a DE pool but my neighbor just changed to salt and he called the salt supplier and they said its the exact same stuff.
What are responsible fish species to have in a salt water fish tank?
I had always wanted a salt water fish tank until I read wild fish species were being strained by the fish tank industry. What are some species of fish that are not as affected by this and would be more responsible choices for a tank? Do any such species exist?
I'm well versed in all those issues, I should have known better...
Question answered by Tabitha
Look for two things to responsibly buy fish:
1) Get tank raised if you can. Many clownfish, dottyback, gobies, blenny, etc are now heavily bred in captivity. One of the most well-known fish farm suppliers is ORA. Anything ORA is good. Not only are these fish not from the wild, they spend less time in transport and are all around hardier than wild fish in the aquarium. They are accustomed to the aquarium environment, plus have less shipping stress.
2) The next best thing to tank raised is fish that are certified as having been collected responsibly. Some places, although more rare now, use cyanide to stun the fish for collection! Get MAC certified fish if you can. The Marine Aquarium Council (MAC) has strict collection guidelines that must be followed for the fish to be certified. If it is not MAC certified there is no guarantee your fish was collected properly which could lead to health issues in your aquarium. Know all imported fish pass CITES, so would not be endangering wild populations or endangered fishes. What you are more concerned about is the health of the individual fish you are purchasing, as without it being MAC certified, for all you know it was poisoned to make it easier to collect!

What would have been a normal amount to ask for when trading salt in Renaissance England?
I have joined a living history group and was assigned the role of a salt trader. The question I have is what would have been a realistic price for salt? Also what types of salt would have been used? Would the "Artisan salts" have been available or used. I know that most meat was salted to preserve it from spoiling and as such salt was necessary for survival. How can i make this character seem realistic and accurate when portrayed in 1570 England?
Question answered by spiffer1
Because salt was used in the process of preserving foods before refrigeration, it was a most sought commodity.
In some places salt was actually used as currency.
Places where salt was mined for use as a commodity were often major trading centres.
You may, at times, be able, as a salt trader to name your price. You may also be a little scurrilous as a business person - mixing in impurities so you can sell less and get more. Also, weights and measures were not accurate at the time and so buyers and sellers would often try to outwit one another. You, therefore, would have to watch your suppliers as those who buy from you would have to watch you.

Years ago, these were available but I can't find a supplier these days, anyone know of a source?
Please answer the question, I do not want lectures on cruelty or legality or whatever else might occur, and don't assume I want to shoot at cats either.

Sure you can feed it to your fish if they will eat it. Soak it in water for 5 minutes first to remove some of the salt.
What is organic (organically produced) epsom salt?
How can a salt be organic or non--organic? Is it something to do with the processing? Thank you.
Question answered by Damon
Best bet would be to directly ask the supplier what they mean by using the word "organic".
It may be that they are marketing to organic gardeners who may use their epsom salts as a fertilizer for high magnesium requirement plants like potatoes and tomatoes.
It may be that they have captured the salts from the distillation or deionization of natural spring waters.
It may also just be a marketing ploy to attract a certain class of customers.
What is the legal status of some of the older "Legal Highs"/"Plant Food"/Bath Salts/"Research Chemicals"?
I know that Mephedrone (Meow Meow) has now been made class B, but there used to be a whole bunch of similar chemicals available (and I know of several suppliers who are still offering them). What I want to know is - Are they still legal or where they banned alongside mepedrone?
The chemicals in mind are:
Or any other similar chemicals you can think of.
Answers on any of these would be great! Thanks.
Question answered by wilde_space
All cathinone-related chemicals have been banned. That includes methylone and flephedrone. I'm not sure about butylone. MDPV and dimethocaine are still legal, since they're not related to cathinone.
