  1. I currently have two 28 gallon tanks. I set one up without a cover. I lose about two liters a week to evaporation in the uncovered tank. My question is if I’m adding two liters of water a week do I still need to do a frequent water change? The tank is stocked with nine cardinal tetras, six Cory cats, one nerite snail, dwarf hair grass, Java fern and water sprite. I check my parameters weekly and they stay within acceptable limits. Than you
  2. I need to top-off the water in my 100 gallon outdoor pond of White Clouds due to evaporation. In the past I've filled it 5 gal at a time, each time dechlorinating the water with a liquid dechlorinator. Would it be harmful to just fill it with the hose and then dose it with dechlorinator?
  3. I have a planted, Fluval Spec V. Because the lid is open in the middle (which I like), I'm losing quite a bit of water to evaporation. Should I replace that with distilled water or treated tap water. My plants are floaters (and I thin some out about every three days or so). Do I need to use distilled because only pure water evaporates or treated tap water because the plants are sucking up minerals? Thanks for any help you can give.
  4. what does everyone do when adding water back to tank after it has evaporated some....do you simply use ULTIMATE or other additives too?...still in process of seasoning tank. Parameters staying fairly steady I will only be adding a little less than 1 gal
