Hoping to get some thoughts from people with experiences in high water bills. I've been seriously bitten by the goldfish bug and my collection at last count was at about 70 goldfish of varying sizes. Let's just say I have a lot of tanks and tubs. Like a lot of goldfish keepers I do frequent large water changes. I don't feel as though I do an excessive amount of water changes so I'm not sure I could really reduce the frequency without effecting their health. I also bring my pond goldies in for the winter so that makes it worse (I live in MD so gets pretty cold here). My water bill has gotten absolutely ridiculous (about $250/month). I can afford to pay it but it's physically painful as before my goldies it was about $20/month. My county charges for water and wastewater and also has a lot of misc add on fees including an excess use charge which I always get nailed with. Anyone else have this problem? I'm not sure what I expect but just thought I would ask just to see if anyone had any ideas on reducing my bill short of moving or rehoming some fish. Maybe I just need to join a goldfish keepers anonymous program. Guess I should also add that I use a pond pump to change the water, so not like I'm using a python that requires the water to be on to drain the tank.
