Clown likes to take RODI baths

My clown LOVES to play in the rodi water I pour in for topoffs. Is there any problem with this? I usually only put in 1-2 gal at a time, since it's only a 54g tank.

I love that, everytime anything new goes in my clowns and my peppermint shrimp are right there. The clowns seem to love the fresh water.

Same here, when I do top offs they come up so quick they look like they're gonna jump out of the tank.

Plus, fish actually prefer slightly less salty water than what we have in the tanks. Natural sea water is 1.025-1.027 but higher bony fishes like clowns maintain their internal SG closer to 1.010-1.012 (about 1/3 that of sea water, or ~100x that of freshwater).

Eh. It probably just tickles.
