Damnit, I have 228 liters of dirty water...

[-] [email protected] 75 points 5 months ago

Sounds like you need two oysters

[-] [email protected] 63 points 5 months ago

Good thing the 2nd oyster is free if you call now!

[-] [email protected] 4 points 5 months ago

But if I have 2 oysters they're gonna over clean the water or the second oyster is just gonna be wasted on only 1 liter of water.

[-] [email protected] 3 points 5 months ago

You will have room for future expansion. The oysters filter water every day.

okay but how do i stop myself from eating the mollusk? thats barely 100 kcal

[-] LEDZeppelin 46 points 5 months ago
[-] moriquende 15 points 5 months ago

Eating the mollusk will enable you to drink the dirty water and have it filtered in your very own guts.

[-] [email protected] 3 points 5 months ago

Let it filter the water and eat it afterwards.

Don't think so, but we can make it painful if that's what you want?

[-] platypus_plumba 52 points 5 months ago

Can they scream? If not, can we make that happen?

[-] [email protected] 29 points 5 months ago* (last edited 5 months ago)

Ohh for sure, we can do that, you want just "AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAARRRRHRHRHRHHHHHHHHHHHHHH" type of basic scream or you want it to go into specific details on where and how it hurts?

Both at the right decibel to not cause pain to the human listener, but loud enough to be heard at a distance.

they make pearls with the pain

[-] [email protected] 12 points 5 months ago

Well you know what they say, can't make an omelet without excruciating pain

[-] 100_percent_a_bot 11 points 5 months ago

I'm pretty sure this is just how they eat

[-] [email protected] 8 points 5 months ago

Not really. You probably should avoid putting heavily polluted water through them though. They are the oceans waste buckets for poo water.

Yes, it can. It can clog their gills, making their feeding less efficient, or interfere with their reproduction through chemicals that leach from the plastic particles. Source: I study bivalves

[-] [email protected] 3 points 5 months ago* (last edited 5 months ago)

Oysters actually need clean/unpolluted water. What they eat and clean is sediment, phytonutrients, and phytoplankton. Well at least that’s what I was tood by an oyster farmer. They clear the water which is good for the sea grass, and the small fish, which is good for the big fish and so on.

Will it take care of the nano-plastics for me or is that an upcoming firmware update?

[-] [email protected] 15 points 5 months ago

Never buy a product based on a promise of a future update

[-] [email protected] 6 points 5 months ago

it will, but please do not eat the oysters. However, even the oysters cannot save your from nanoplastics.

[-] dantheclamman 5 points 5 months ago

They are confirmed to be able to gather nano-plastics as larvae, and microplastic as adults, though no studies have looked at nanoscale particles in adult oysters from what I could find. They may ingest the plastic or package it up in mucus to expel as "pseudofeces", trapping the plastic particles in the sediment. Source: I study bivalves

[-] [email protected] 21 points 5 months ago

227? I got 2x 230. They always make it so that it is just too little so you buy another one! Slimy scammers!

[-] pdxfed 3 points 5 months ago

Found George Banks.

[-] mwproductions 21 points 5 months ago

The 800 number is missing a digit. Now how am I supposed to get my oyster?

[-] [email protected] 11 points 5 months ago

Well there’s only 10 options, try them all! (For science)

What do you recommend for a 1000L IBC tank?

[-] [email protected] 21 points 5 months ago
[-] [email protected] 12 points 5 months ago
[-] jopepa 4 points 5 months ago

You can offset that by changing the feeding schedule. Just replenish the tank with gray water every other day instead of daily and you should be fine with only four.

That's a big ass bucket

[-] [email protected] 8 points 5 months ago

All good, but it's gotta be salt water. I guess I can use it to boil pasta or blanch vegetables...

[-] [email protected] 4 points 5 months ago

How about mussels? Can they filter water?

[-] Altofaltception 5 points 5 months ago

The pearl industry hates this one trick

[-] Floodedwomb 4 points 5 months ago

This si what science textbooks are going to look like in 20 years.

[-] AllOutOfBubbleGum 2 points 5 months ago

I before E, except after C.

I feel like most of those words would be pronounced very differently with IE
