My god! how much do fish drink?

It seems like every couple days I am pouring water into my tanks to keep them filled! Are my fish really drinking that much water???

Is this a real question? If so then ill start by saying its evaporation your refilling.

If its a joke then ill start by saying yes. They drink to much and thats why we have AA. Its really for their support!

This makes no sense cause they pee out the same amount they drink so your water level shouldn't change but your water should yellow without the proper filtration.

Are you serious too? I hope your joking.

Its called EVAPORATION. When your water level drops its disappearing from evaporation
Here are some links for those of you who dont quite understand evaporation
http://www.thefreedictionary.com/_/d...rd=evaporation
