Are you ****ing serioius. YOur in this news group looking for
answers? Did you really take a look around you and see what is in
this group............its no longer a pond group its a anyhting goes
group. All the faggot ass hipocrites that like ponds are in a
moderated group away from normal people. Run along and see if you can
find them, and join their moderated play group, where everyone is a
big cheese and dick licker.

The rec.ponds folks have moved to Google Groups. Just search Google for
the moderated group which is 'ponds' business as usual without the trolls
in this Usenet version.

Hi "Mad"

Actually, rec.ponds.moderated is still a usenet group, but a few
NSP's have been reluctant to carry it because there is already a
"ond" group. People should update their newsgroup list, and if they
still don't find "rpm", then they should continue to ask their NSP to
start carrying it.
In the meantime, Google does carry all the usenet groups, and
so they do in fact also carry rpm. So a person with questions can
access rpm through Google. The only problem is that many of us feel
that the Google interface leaves a LOT to be desired.
All persons are invited to participate in rpm through Google, but
they must understand that their words, attitude and behavior are
moderated, and any troll-like behavior will not be permitted. But if
a person is really into ponding, he or she will find rpm to be a
wonderful group to be a part of.


Thanks for the followup Ron


Even the rec. pond troll would be welcome if he would just grow
up and change his attitude. He is a real expert in many ponding
areas, and he would be most welcome if he could just let go of the
boulder on his shoulder.

Ron Schompert (one of those who helped create rpm)



Isn't going to happen. Anyone affiliated with bobandcarole and the phoney
pedo idiots in alt.support.boy-lovers where goofy here hangs out,
that are trying to profit from doing nothing but harassing folks isn't
worth the time it took to type your invitation. Killfile the goof like
I did and the world's a better place.

thanks again for the update..

I don't know the filter so Googled for it. I think you mean the
Zeolite.

Zeolite is used in aquariums to remove ammonia and can be refreshed in
a salt solution. In this case the ammonia should have been removed by
the earlier biological media. The filter removes nitrates and I think
the Zeolite is used for that. It needs a low flow for the bacteria to
develop that breaks the nitrate down into nitrogen and oxygen and they
can take six months to develop.

I suggest you read the manual that came with the filter but if it is
using the Zeolite to break down nitrates then putting it in salt water
will kill the bacteria so you don't want to do that.

I suggest you read the manual that came with the filter, but if it is zeolite nitrate decomposition, and then put it in salt water can kill bacteria, so you do not want to do so.

Zeolite is acclimated in aquariums to abolish ammonia and can be active in a alkali solution. In this case the ammonia should accept been removed by the beforehand biological media. The clarify removes nitrates and I think the Zeolite is acclimated for that.
