So I started my tank a week ago and it was all goin' pretty good

And then today I go to take another picture

The keen eye will notice my water level has dropped just around an inch!!

 

So I start to look at my tank closer trying to find leaks and stuff. And I see these things everywhere

Are they drinking my damn tank water?! :angry:

Those look like copepods. They're good. And you need to refill your tank with RO/DI water, because when saltwater evaporates it leaves salt behind so the salinity rises, which is why you need to refill your tank with RO/DI.

the jbj picotope loses a lot of water. Mine has to be topped off everyday with a bottled water.

 

That's the problem I experienced with smaller tanks. Also what kind of light are you using? That could also be the

problem. It might be too hot and evaporating your water too fast.

 

You will need to monitor your water closely or get an Auto topoff system so that the water keeps stable.

Zoos and some other corals dont like that extreme salinity change overnight.

not only did they drink your water, they ate your sand too !

 

well i didnt have any sand, but that would certainly explain why my dry rock is smaller :mellow:

Oh, you didn't say you had a dry rock. Obviously it absorbed all that water. It might have also contained some sponges that soaked it up. :unsure:

not even close. 3/10. Just a notch above tang trolls.

 

when you can beat my turtle thread, i'll give you props.

I'd rather read a debate about tangs than try to help someone who is actually just trolling.

 

On a side note, would like a to see a link to said turtle trolling.
