Friendly reminder that water that flows through copper pipes has the potential to wipe out shrimp/sensitive fish ecosystems.

Doesn't matter what copper it is, if it's oxidized or what. It will leach trace elements into the water which will then kill off your entire tank of Grade SSS Red Crystal Shrimp.

Oh the horror stories...
