My grandkids were swimming in the pool today and we had set up a wading pool on the patio next to the fish pond for my one year old. I gave him a plastic cup and teapot to play with. I then went in to get towels and upon my return my 31 year old son informed me that my fish like tea. I looked at him puzzled and then snapped. My grandson had been pouring water into the pond and having a tea party with the fish. I grabbed the Prime and then we had a lesson on chlorine and fish. Oh, Lord. Everyone is fine!

Just be happy he didn't fall into the pond! I doubt the fish got enough "tea" to upset their water chemistry - but it is amazing what kids will get into

I agree. Drowning is one of my biggest fears. Fortunately, the pond is raised up over 3’ with a brick wall around it and an adult is always out when the kids are in the backyard.

I'm so glad everything worked out ok!. I know how you feel, though. My niece pour her glass of milk into my 55 Gallon, about 10 years ago, LOL. Needless to say, that was a mess we never forgot about. I still joke about that, today with her, how she murdered my tetras by accident. :/:/:/. But I guess kids have to learn the hard way sometimes, unfortunately at the expense of the fish. I'm so glad everything worked out for you. :drinks::good:
