Just replacing the evaporative water with straight untreated tap. When using live bearers like platies the tank builds up a more or less stable population of 20-30 fish in a 10g tank that lasts for years.
So it's not a complete closed eco jar but rather a low maintenance aquarium setup that is basically balanced out and stabilized by the plants.
still just my .02
replacing evaporated water is more or less a water change. did you feed any fish or are they herbivores ?
do you use a filter?
