Do any of you know the affects of fluoride in the tap water, is it good or bad for the fish?

I have been wondering the same thing myself. I did some searching around and found an interesting article. Apparently the levels of Fluoride in drinking water are not harmful to fish. Just don't go eating any tubes of toothpaste!! It seems the stuff is really toxic in high amounts.

Good read Hongi, no wonder there's a big fight on fluoride here in Utah.
Looks like next Oct. it takes effect.
