 @Harshal,
 
 That  was  a  informative  piece  of  information  that  you  have  mentioned.  I  have  lost  couple  of  Amano  shrimps  in  this  way.
 
 @asheesh,
 
 Thanks.

Hi  Shelly
 
 Ya  ammano's  have  these  tendencies  to  take  the  "walk  to  the  heavens"  as  i  normally  put  it.....it's  actually  their  natural  instinct,  in  wild  they  move  from  one  swamp  to  the  other  by  jumping  or  walking,  thats  exactly  what  they  are  doing  in  the  aquarium  of  course  the  difference  is  they  will  not  find  another"swamp"  in  our  homes  Smile......  But  once  they  settle  they  can  do  a  real  good  job....lost  a  few  myself  whenever  I  don't  find  them  in  the  aquarium  I  always  scan  the  room.....BTW  do  check  the  water  parameters.                

 
 I  also  have  had  a  similar  experience  with  Ammanos.....  Their  was  this  tub  filled  with  water  kept  next  to  the  stand  of  the  tank  wherein  i  had  a  couple  of  Ammanos,  The  tub  had  cuttings  of  plants  from  my  other  tank  (and  not  the  one  with  Ammanos  in  it),  One  day  I  saw  an  Ammano  shrimp  in  the  tub  and  I  was  wondering  how  in  the  hell  did  it  get  in  there  since  I  have  not  trimmed  the  plants  in  the  shrimp  tank  for  it  to  hang  to  any  of  the  stems  that  I  had  cut.......  I  guess  it  would  have  done  the  same  thing  that  Harshal  has  mentioned  here....  but  lost  3  other  Ammanos  who  were  not  that  lucky  to  find  another  water  body  closeby....     
 
 Sorry  josyjames  for  going  off  topic  here.....

 Auto-Top-Up  system
 
 I  had  built  a  auto-topup  system  for  this  tank.  Since  the  evaporation  rate  is  more,  I  get  the  white  line  in  the  glass.  To  avoid  this,  I  had  build  the  auto-topup  system  long  time  back.  Connected  this  to  the  tank  yesterday.
 
 Here  are  some  photos  of  the  setup.
 
 Float  valve
 
 Float  valve  is  guarded  with  a  black  mesh  to  avoid  accidental  triggering  of  the  float  switch.  The  mesh  will  prevent  from  any  fish,  dirt  disturbing  the  float  switch.
 
 
 
 Float  valve  can  be  adjusted  to  the  level  required.  Once  the  height  is  set,  the  float  valve  will  trigger  once  the  water  level  goes  down  due  to  evaporation.  When  the  float  valve  gets  triggered,  the  pump  will  start  pumping  the  water  from  the  sump  kept  below.  Once  the  set  water  level  is  reached  in  the  tank,  the  float  valve  will  de-activate  the  water  pump.   
 
 
 
 Triggering  system  and  the  water  pump
 
 
 
 Here  I  have  used  my  syringe  doser  as  the  water  pump.  So  that  the  water  would  be  pumped  very  slowly  into  the  display  tank.

 Shelly,
 
 You  could  use  a  bigger  syringe  to  minimise  the  time  taken  for  top  up,  just  a  suggestion.

 Spend  atleast  5  min  daily  on  the  tank  to  remove  any  dead  leave  etc..
