    I actually have a large turtle tank, and I am wondering if anyone has watered their veggie garden with it. I have not heard too much about turtle water/filter waste to ‘fertilize’ a veggie garden. Turtle water has similar benefits to a fish tank, but they are much messier when compared to a fish tank. Tested the pH, nitrates etc. and they are at acceptable ranges. I am thinking possibly using a 50:50 dilution?

    New here, love the videos lots of great info. Thanks for any input.
