Water Quality and Water Treatment in Zoos and Aquariums

The purpose of this forum is to allow professionals from the public aquarium and zoo community to post questions and stimulate discussion on any issues related to water quality, water treatment and aquatic plant and animal husbandry.
Although typically focused on issues directly related to water quality and life support systems, we encourage the posting of any questions related to the health and ethical care of aquatic animals.
