Yeah, I anticipate this will be quite a learning experience. I'm already accustomed to weekly water changes, and for consistency will buy my water at the LFS
so I don't screw anything up.
Just wondering about topping off every couple of days. I would have a tight fitting glass top- will I get that much evaporation? That seems like a lot. Is that unique to SW
setups? Reason I'm asking is that I do weekly changes on our tanks and haven't seen that w/ FW
Forgive me if I sound like I'm doubting you, just trying to understand.
