Just a quick thought, how much water do you guys loose from evaporation?

To start off mine is an open 55g tank that is 48" long and 12" wide. Its an open tank, with 2 55watts 67k power compact running for 8 hours a day. My water temp is 79F, with Rena xp2. I also a jebo powerhead close to the top for surface agitation.

It seems like I have to put in 2 liters of water everyother day.

What about you guys?

...i add a gallon or two every other day in my 50. it seems to be slowing down a bit since it has cooled off though. my 29 loses about two to three gallons a week. it has a canopy, the 50 is open top.

Yes, wow! Do you snorkle in it?
Can I come to you to snorkel in it?:biggrin:
I lose a lot of water, 2-3 gallons a day on a 75g tank. My building's management is crazy about heating and I need to turn on fan in my tank when it's 48F outside.
