Looking over your shoulder......
Been thinking about using the local river water, filtered through peatland so lovely tanin stained fast flowing and above any farmland.
Am I missing something? I plan to collect and filter before use.
And of course I need to test it first

One issue with using water from a local natural source is bacteria. There can be pathogens harmful to fish from other fish (local species have different immunities than tropical), birds, other animals. Chlorination kills most of these.
