When you top off the tank next time, use a magic marker to make a little both where the water level is. How big is your tank again? And are you topping with fresh water?

It's extremely hard to maintain water quality in a 10 gallon. Minor changes show up as major changes when there isn't very much water volume. It'll be really hard to maintain a stable salinity in a tank that size but it can be done. Lots of people do it.

I agree, i have a 40 gallon breeder with a pair of red bellie pirhana in it which i am going to convert into a reef tank this coming year, started the nano ten gallon to start my collection of frags and a few inverts, going to use a few small pieces of lr to seed the tank and the nano will become my sump/fuge
