jpappy789 Well, considering beneficial bacteria are mostly found on surfaces, adding water wouldn't make much difference.

Darkblade48 Why would you want to use 5 gallons of lake water? Not only would the water parameters be unknown (until you measure them), there may be issues with parasites, bacteria, etc.
