How odd. I searched ebay Canada and the only result was from France - so you can get them... from FRANCE. I wonder if they prefer to ship only to Quebec. :hihi:

Frameless, meaning no AIO partition in the back? Or is there another frame somewhere I don't see?

I've had a small nano cube and used a turkey baster to clean - is this much different?

Thanks...

If you want to increase TDS/GH/kH, then yes top off with remineralized water. But it will keep going up. As long as kH doesn't drop below 2 I haven't seen molt issues.

OP states he's mainly topping off. To avoid _raising_ the TDS/kH/GH, ideal top off water would be RO/DI @0.00PPM.

Wet/drys are great at rapidly converting large amounts of biological waste (mainly...
