Na, its going to happen anyways. I live in AZ and I don't have any lids on my tank. I add like 3-4 gallons every 3 days.

On the 240 gal? So I should only have to add maybe 2 gal a week to this one theoretically?

how you figure..maybe from just evap alone.take account the skimmer and some fish tend to get jumpy.also the lighting will make water evap faster.

That's another reason I'm not sure about rimless.. Jumpy fish. If anything does decide to jump out, they will definitely be a new play toy for my dog lol

they shouldn't really jump.just feed them food that sink and keep the current down some..fish usually like to jump if they are in a strong current.

The person said it's got a wet/dry filter and a 90gph coralife skimmer. I think I like this one a little better than the 46 bowfront. I would deff convert the filter to a refugium and take the bioballs out

Did you ask about the live rock? He shows it, but doesn't mention it in the post...

So I talked to the guy and he raised the price from when the CL add was posted a month ago because he says he got a new skimmer for it, the coralife. Anyways I was like it says this price on CL so we talked and haggled some more and basically what we ended up agreeing on was $500 for everything, the whole setup, lights, filter return pump, skimmer etc, etc, the live sand and a bit of live rock so I can cycle the tank with it and seed the dead rock I'll end up buying. Did I do okay? I feel like it's a pretty good deal.
