Dump it outside... I'm cheap. I don't want to up the sewage bill by dumping it down the drain.

In the summer I dump it outside on the weeds, the saltwater helps keep them at bay and in the winter, down the toilet.

down the toilet for me. To be honest i barely do water changes anymore. The tank has been running for years, and i find my lps are looking better then ever since i stopped cleaning the tank as much.

OK, realistically, most threads here will not become buried due to the lack of responses, but, how would you feel if your thread were to become derailed with discussions outside of your original question?
