    Hi all,

    Thinking of going for a rimless tank 60"x 24" x 24" in the lounge
    Can anyone advise of expected water loss with a freshwater aquascaped set up?
    I have searched the web but most posts relate to reef tanks, which use increased agitation of the water an fans blowing on the surface.

    Thanks in advance

    It will depend upon relative humidity in your home. I lose much more in the winter than the summer. Its around 3 gallons a week for me on my 90 cm tank. I've added a small ATO system that keeps the water level up. I love it. No more topping off or problems with CO2 degassing due to changes in surface agitation.
