    Does sea water stored in plastic water containers get contaminated. Can a week or 10 days old natural sea water in containers be used for marine aquariums.

      Thanks for your question, Abi! As long as the plastic container never held or was cleaned with any potentially toxic or otherwise harmful materials, it should be safe to hold sea water, and you can definitely store the water for a week to 10 days before use with no problems.
