Product Review of Aquasense Evaporated Water Replenisher

Manufactured by Natural Cycles

AquaSense: Note, this product review was written for the September 2000 issue of Marine Fish Monthly. (Written in 2003 - product no longer available) One of the most time consuming task's aquarium hobbyists have to contend with is replenishing evaporated water. Evaporation makes it almost a daily chore! Too much evaporation without adequate replenishment will increase salinity levels and result in stressed aquarium inhabitants. Compounding that stress is the addition of too much makeup water at one time. Fortunately, aquarium product companies have produced a wide array of what is termed more.
