Replacing evaporating water
When the water evaporates, the salt stays in so the salt level gets more concentrated. Should I be replacing the water as it evaporates? I've heard conflicting things.
YES use r/o water
Thanks. What is r/o water?
Reverse Osmosis which means that it's distilled water being added to the saltwater to equal out the minerals and salt in the saltwater. That's the easiest way I can explain it but here is a site to explain it in detail.
Thank you Jazmine! We ended up using tap water to replace the water but we put in drops of... I forget what it is called... to make the water suitable to be added to the tank. The fish seem to be doing just fine. It's been almost a month. I think we can move on from damsels and get bigger fish soon!
