102g - Vladec aquarium without changing water

Recommended Posts

Vladec

Hello
My name is Vlad. I live in Kharkov, Ukraine

Let me represent you my marine aquarium (MA) and explain it’s maintenance.
My Marine Aquarium (MA) starting from 27.01.2011

 

 

My MA system contents:

Heater 2 pcs 100w
Pump flow Boyu WM- 2 + SunSun JVP-101
Light 150W mg + 7pcs. blue LEDs cre + 2 pcs. T5 24W actinic

 

My MA Maintanance:
Once per day – manually adding water (you could combine it with feeding for time saving). I haven’t seen good auto water top up device yet.

 

Topping up my MA with tap water (settled for one day).
The idea of "topping up method" instead of “replacement” is that the drinking water from the tap (if tap water is not suitable then you can use spring water) you add everything what’s needed in your MA.

 

The experiment lasts from of November 2012

How the heck do you replace alk and calcium by only topping off?
