     On One Hand: Salt Water Pools Are Low Salinity
    Ocean water has a mean salinity grade of 35,000 components per million. Recommended salinity for a saltwater fish aquarium is 28,000 to 38,000 ppm counting on the kind of fish being kept in the tank. Saltwater pool schemes have a salinity extending between 2800 to 4000 ppm. This is about 10 per hundred of the salinity of ocean water, so saltwater fish can't reside in a saltwater bathing pool.
    On the Other: Salt Water Pools Contain Toxic Chemicals
    Saltwater swimming pools have a chlorinator that values electrolysis to shatter down the saline (NaCl) into hypochlorous unpleasant (HOCl), and sodium hypochlorite (NaClO). These chemicals proceed as essential disinfectants in the pool, but they are highly harmful to all kinds of fish.
    Bottom Line
    Fish put in a saline water bathing pool will be revealed to improper grades of saline and harmful chemicals and will most probable disgust and die.

     h**l yea! ive had a friend that put molly fish in his pool and they lasted for a month! but it had barley any chlorine cos it was a magnesium pool...

  5. Guest3662
    If it has chlorine in it, no.
  6. Guest4322
    No, there is no way it could possibly happen without most or all of your fishies dying. Because it would have to be cleaned entirely, rinsed out, filtered. And you can't have any chlorine in it either. I think you would rather do something else with your fishies other than spend alot of money cleaning out your pool.

    I wouldn't try it. I've never heard of fish living in salt water. seems crazy to me.
  8. Guest5152
    maybe (don't blame me for anything) because fish live in sea and the water is salty. so there's a chance.
  9. Guest302
    they cant!

  10. Guest4752
    It's a salt water pool... this kinda seems reasonable. I'm sure they coud survive long enough to be dealt with that night, or the next day. I'd say the biggest threat would be temperature change. What kind of fish, anyway?
  11. Guest3226
    No way! The pool is full of massive amounts of chlorine that would harm the fish and would kill them.

    If the pool has chlorine in it, no. The fish cannot survive in it.
  13. Guest9889
    yes it would.

    just remember NO, chlorine and try and make sure that the fish aren't in cold water try your best to make it room temp.

    i would say do a blow up pool just to be on the safe side.

    your welcome

    You probably know that you can't clean a fish tank out with soap or w.e. Why? Becouse the chlorine in the water will make the fish sufficate.

    Now imagine this on a larger scale .. if the chlorine in tap water will kill them, what would happen if you drop them in 20% chlorine?

    Short answer: They'll die within seconds, so no.
  15. Guest4194
    if ur pool has chlorine in it the chemicals will probably kill all the fish...theyll probably last long enough 4 u 2 keep the theme 4 ur party though..
  16. Guest7146
    No, no, NO. Most saltwater fish are very delicate, and if the shock of being put into the totally wrong water parameters in your pool DIDN'T kill them, the stress of being in there with lots of swimmers would.
  17. Guest1235
    Doubt it
  18. Guest2339
    you will have to clean it every day and annot have chlorine in it
  19. Guest2776
    no
  20. Guest6963
    Salt water pools are not oceanic salinity and do not provide the life support (water quality parameters) required. You'll just kill them.
  21. Guest1374
    Even a salt water pool needs chlorine so no they wouldn't survive. Try putting Moray eels, sharks and electric eels, your friends will love that.
  22. Guest6505
    as long as u treat the water appropiately and make sure humans do not mess with it. It could be possible but the pool would have to be cleaned deeply. ask ur local PetSmart associate for advice as to whether this would be a good idea.
  23. Guest7995
    no they will not , regardless if you have chlorine in it or not pet fish need all fish related chemicals to survive I would suggest you do like they do at wedding receptions , I have seen many people put fish bowls on tables with gold fish in them but be sure to either have a home for them or put them in a tank yourself in your home in many states it is illegal to do a wild release of fish , also move them to a tank with all necessary pumps and chemicals needed ASAP so they will survive, do not keep them in the bowls too long.

    nooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo...

    The salt content of your swimming pool is not the same as the sea so marine fish are generally going to die, quite quickly.

    Just to clairfy - the pool is one thats NOT treated with directly with Chlorine. It's loaded up to with plain salt, but not as much as sea water. The chlorine is temporarily created inside the filter by electrolysis, kills the bugs, then re-combines into sodium chloride again when it returns to the pool.

    Much better to swim in, but still not correct for marine fish, and too salty for fresh water species.

    I guess you could get some brackish species like a molly to survive, but I still dont think it's a great idea.

    If you treat your pool proper and clean it as often as a fish tank and have the right temperature they might survive. Just make sure they have enough food. Be careful if people will be swimming in the pool with the fish because they might squash them and that wouldn't be very pretty. OHH YEA make sure there is no chlorine in the pool aswell.

    Sorry, no
