Ummm ... with Valentine's day right around the corner, perhaps we should keep this thread about water levels. I could see some of the husbands commenting about their wives boots spending needing a doghouse for the 14th.

But, if it comes to that ... I guess the "They look great! Why don't you get yourself another pair, here's my credit card" line may keep you indoors.

No guarantees.

As for the random question, I keep my water just a little above the black line too. I like the sound the water makes when the hob skimmer and refugium dumps the water back in the tank, and it adds a little circulation too.

Smart man! Lol.

My wife doesn't like to see the water lines so since my tank is kinda high, and you can't see through the top of water, I just keep it high enough to where you can't see it on the side. Behind the black strip per say.

Convict.....I like your style! Perfect reply re:the boots purchase. I keep my tank about 1/2 inch from the top, provides a little water 'music' from the HOB double Bio filter but not high enough for any splash.
Get total support from my hubby with my aquarium obsession because he has 6 tortoises & would have 100 I believe if money wasn t an issue!

I fill mine pretty much to the top, at least to the trim, but I run a canister, and if I wanted to hear the "water music" the level would be about 4" below the top. I use a bubbler to help with the oxygen. I probably don't need it, but like your wife, mine likes the look of it.
