Hi. Can someone advise me about water loss from my aquarium. There is no visible signs of leakage yet top it up by approx 1 litre every three or so days. Always keep it to same level as marked on lid that's how I know it is reducing. Thanks.. Steve

Hi bhg481. Think that's the answer because I have power filter with ventura system. Ventura is only activated for about 8hrs but that would account for it. Thanks
