We are always interested in hearing from our customers regarding how Watt-Ahh® has helped them. Over the past several years, we have been fortunate that many of our customers have come forward with great testimonials on the benefits of Watt-Ahh®. Yesterday, we found that we are making a difference in another life as well!
This summer we are lucky enough to have Katie Kopinski, an intern from the University of Tampa pursuing a Bachelor of Science degree in Marine Biology, working with us. She has been a great help around the shop and took it upon herself – in her free time – to see if our ultra-pure water would help fish. It makes sense that we get great benefits by drinking Watt-Ahh®, why wouldn’t fish – who live in it all day – see some benefits as well?
The following is a section of Katie’s write up from this eye-opening experiment:
“The purpose of this experiment is to test the effect that Watt-Ahh® has on goldfish growth. During a 40- day period, two Comet Goldfish are being placed in separate bowls; one bowl contains tap water while the other contains the Watt-Ahh® brand. In order for the fish in the tap water bowl to survive, de-chlorinator drops are required. Weight and length of the fish are measured at the beginning of the experiment and will be measured during the middle and end of the experiment. Throughout the experimental period, the fish will be fed the same amount and have equal volumes of water in their bowls. Lastly, each fish has given a small aerator to ensure its survival.”
The results so far have been exciting. As you can see in the video below the fish in Bowl B (the Watt-Ahh® bowl), are far more active and healthy looking compared to the fish in Bowl A. We will keep you posted as soon as the official study is over and we have further results. We will be running this same experiment again in the future and will keep you up to date on our findings.”
Updated Report from Katie Kopinski on Aug. 4, 2011:
“Unfortunately, Fish A (tap water) died. Fish A had black specks on its body, which may have been bacteria. It lived several days after the black first appeared. Fish A was stressed last night, so I tried waiting to measure length this morning, and he shrank because he died. Fish B (Watt-Ahh®) grew 0.2 cm. Though, I cannot determine anything based on growth, it is clear that Fish B (Watt-Ahh®) was more energized throughout and did not suffer from any health issues, unlike Fish A.”
